Crowdfunding Working Group


The Crowdfunding Working Group brings together leaders from organizations and social enterprises that use, support, or develop crowdfunding and peer-to-peer platforms as a mechanism for giving. Members are interested in understanding the unique motivations of crowdfunding donors and the dynamics that drive crowdfunding campaigns, in order to leverage the advantages they offer for the benefit of service providers and beneficiaries. As crowdfunding continues to grow in popularity, it will be essential to not only understand the landscape, but set the course for the future.


This group has met multiple times to hone their focus, define tangible research questions, crowspecify data science methodologies, and identify partnerships and collaboration structures. Convenings were held as follows:

  • 2021-07
  • 2022-06
  • 2022-10
