What is Fan-Funding?

Fan-funding is the the ability to bring creative projects to life through the collaboration of project creators and fans.

Fan-funding is not "crowdfunding"

Fan-funding at its core is based on the mutual respect and appreciation between the project creator and the fan. "Crowdfunding" runs the risk of reducing creativity to a transaction, ignoring the creator to fan relationship once the goal is met. For creative artists, this can be less than ideal.

Creativity is not about "all or nothing"

Creativity is a living, breathing process and fan-funding actively engages the creators with fans, creating lifetime bonds between people over years, even decades.
