Crowdfunding

Looking Forward

In the age of social media networking and personal brands, a new form of fundraising is gaining significant traction. Whether you are a paleontologist seeking financial assistance for fossil excavation, or a musician looking to fund your first album, people are turning to crowdfunding as a way to realize projects, spread awareness about a cause, or even cover medical expenses. The New York Times articles collected in this volume give a sense of the great variety of crowdfunded projects, the particular advantages or drawbacks of the method, and the potential challenges and controversies that can arise from crowdfunding. Features such as media literacy questions and terms help readers understand how the reporting of the topic has developed.
