You may know that crowd funding has become increasingly popular today. One of the
reasons it is so popular is because it works. Basically, you find a crowd finding website
(company) that best suits your needs and mission. There are many that are mission
specific. Then, you complete the online instructions with details about your mission, who
your group is, how much money you need and where you plan to go. Then, you launch
your own crowd funding website and help promote it. People give whatever they can, but
because crowd funding websites reach everywhere, donations can come from anywhere
-- not just from your parish or neighborhood.
