Here are four things I found out about civic crowdfunding.
1. Civic crowdfunding is small-scale but relatively successful, and it has big ambitions.
2. Civic crowdfunding started as a hobby for green space projects by local non-profits, but larger organizations are getting involved.
3. Civic crowdfunding is concentrated in cities (especially those where platforms are based).
4 Civic crowdfunding has the same highly unequal distributional tendencies as other crowd markets.
