The way you can raise money has dramatically changed over the last few years. In the past, you had to go from lender to lender begging to get money.

    Not sure why Deposit a Gift isn’t on this list. I recently launched a campaign on this site and I was pretty happy with the success.

    This is a great list with some good diversity of crowdfunding platforms. One you missed: Kapipal.

    Kapipal was founded in 2009, making it one of the first crowdfunding platforms of its kind in the world. The focus is on personal crowdfunding. There are no project requirements, no minimums to raise, and only PayPal fees. Any money you raise is yours to keep.

    Whether you have a personal project (like recording an album, rebuilding a classic car, or a documentary to film), a charitable cause (like an animal rescue league or a friend’s Lyme Disease treatment), or a group purchase (like buying a large wedding gift or collecting money for a birthday party), Kapipal is the place to raise money!

    All of these seem pretty interesting sites, but someone recommended that I use Deposit a Gift, since it has “more features”, like “tickets”, to help raise money for the local church. I have started to set up my page and like the site a lot so far, I’m surprised that its not on this list.

    I have been considering this for a while so I found your article….hmmm. I’m wondering if this would work for me. I am a single mother and a disabled veteran and have zero family except my son who is 12. I recently left and divorced his father and he is now trying to get custody of his son. I’m a great mother. I really am. Only problem is I have no way to hire a lawyer on a fixed income and raising a child all alone. I don’t know I hate asking for anything. I’ve new r gotten any sort of public aid or anything. But do u think that would work? Ughh. I don’t know
