New ways of funding creative projects

Here are a few new ways of promoting the funding of creative projects which we think are worth highlighting: is a US website which helps you to promote your film project for crowd funding. Make sure you have a niche audience, creative perks and a personal pitch and can promote it yourself. You'll need to get at least 100 visits to get a donation I'm told. Nottingham film-maker Jeanie Finlay talks about her experiences of crowd funding for her film Sound It Out on is a new UK site run by Ed Whiting to enable arts projects to pitch for crowd funding. Rewards could include invitationts to private views, rehearsals, merchandise, signed prints etc. The 12 projects on the site so far have raised £8k but it's early days... the site takes 5% commission. provides match funding for charitable arts organisations. The match funding bit is a bit complicated to us, and its most relevant to limited companies with staff and a board of trustees.
