Looking for ways to raise money for your campaign, your party, or just about anything else? Crowdtilt is a tool developed with your issues in mind. The web-application offers tools that make it easy for organizers to collect money from people for virtually any purpose whatsoever.
Crowdtilt is often referred to as Kickstarter for friends. The web-application takes the basic premise behind Kickstarter – a funding platform for creative projects – and adapts it for groups of friends and associates. Instead of seeking money to fund a new project you’ve been working on or a business you’re developing, you can use Crowdtilt to collect money for group events, parties, and trips. Start a campaign by typing in a few words about what you’re collecting money for and setting a goal amount, then share your new campaign with friends via Twitter, Facebook, and email. If you raise enough money to meet your pre-determined goals within seven days of your campaign going live, then the campaign will “tilt” and your friends’ credit cards will be charged. The funds that Crowdtilt collects will be deposited in your bank account, for you to use to fulfill the goal you created.
Crowdtilt automatically shuts down any campaign that hasn’t met its financial goal within seven days, and people who’ve pledged to donate to those campaigns can walk away without their cards ever being charged. For groups of friends looking to collect money for gifts, trips, and summer timeshares, Crowdtilt is a great solution.
