Fee-Free Crowdfunding for artists performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
March 22, 2016  //  By:   //  News  //  Comments are off

FringeFunder.com is a new crowfunding platform specially for Edinburgh Fringe shows with all the best features of Kickstarter and Indiegogo but without their 5% service fee.

It is the first and only crowdfunding platform in the world to charge 0% service fee.

Despite being zero-fee, Fringe Funder has all the familiar features of other crowdfunding platforms, including campaign management tools, backer-only updates and a choice of funding types:
‘Keep what you raise’ – where all money is kept no matter what.
‘All or nothing’ – where the target must be met to receive funds.

What’s the catch?… There is none. Fringe Funder’s aim is to support the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and will never charge a service fee. It’s currently looking into non-profit status and sponsorship for 2017.

FringeFunder.com launches on April 7th with plenty of time to crowdfund for the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

There are three shows already on board that people can pledge money for in return for great rewards:
‘They Built It. No One Came.’ by Fledgling Theatre
‘Epic Love and Pop Songs’ by Phoebe Eclair-Powell and directed by Jamie Jackson
‘Exactly Like You’ by Joe Brown and Matt Whayman

Anybody who’d like to support the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, or participants looking for funding are encouraged to visit and share FringeFunder.com.

For a limited time, new campaigns can also receive a free video and one-to-one help setting up their projects.
