Launching Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Final Aspects of Community Design.
SALISBURY, FEBRUARY 23, 2016 – Salisbury – There is a new crowdfunding platform available to individuals, community groups, innovators, schools, churches and others looking to harness the power of crowdfunding for their project. MyFundNow (https://myfundnow.com) – a low cost alternative to bigger names in the crowdfunding space, has recently launched a flexible funding model with fees of just 3.5% in addition to credit card processing fees.
“MyFundNow has been designed to be an affordable alternative to the larger crowdfunding sites in the marketplace. Repeated studies have shown that even when using Gofundme or Indiegogo, the vast majority of campaigns are funded by people you already know or are connected with. MyFundNow lowers the cost involved in raising funds without sacrificing the tools you get at other places,” said Brent Murphy, founder of MyFundNow.
Crowdfunding websites are used to raise funds for a wide range of causes and concepts. MyFundNow’s goal is to make crowdfunding affordable and flexible for those seeking to raise cash to support their ideas.
“Crowdfunding has been a game changer for so many causes and ideas in the last few years. Our model is built around making it easier and more affordable for people to get their ideas off the ground and to secure funding for projects that need it,” Murphy added. “We want people to use MyFundNow to get their projects launched quickly and successfully. It is our hope that we will be able to help thousands of people improve their lives, create new products, help organizations in need and more by making this tool flexible and affordable.”
MyFundNow allows people to set up their crowdfunding campaign for free and collects just 3.5% of donations beyond the standard credit card processing fees set by the third party processor. All campaigns are vetted by the MyFundNow team before being approved to use the platform and email support is available.
MyFundNow’s first campaign was launched late last week by a US Army Veteran who served four tours of duty overseas. He is seeking to raise $8,000 to fund him returning to the Middle East, this time to fight against ISIS with the Kurdish Peshmerga, who have been so successful in driving ISIS out of occupied cities in Iraq.
