Link: Civic Crowdfunding

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.
