Have you ever been asked to contribute money to fund something or been in charge of collecting cash for an event or cause? If so, then you may have experienced a time or two when funds fell short either in total or from individuals. Crowdtilt is a way to manage funding of projects so that funds are accounted for and goals are met.
Crowdtilt works by creating a funding campaign which is then shared with others in order to collect funds. Campaigns can be just about anything from sport leagues to bachelor parties, birthdays to bakesales. Each campaign is its own project with funding goal. Donors contribute and are only charged their donation amount when the goal is met. Afterwards, the funds are sent to the campaign administrator to be used for their project or event.
Since getting the word out is key to receiving contributions, Crowdtilt requires a Facebook account for sign-up and encourages sharing through other platforms. Crowdtilt is free to start a campaign, but does charge a 2.5% fee if the campaign tilts (reaches its goal). Since their launch in February 2012, Crowdtilt has gained quick popularity and has helped more than 6k users collect funds. If you know someone having a baby or in need of a vacation, try out Crowdtilt for raising money. You may just be surprised how generous others can be.
