Crowdfunding Platforms – An Alternative Source of Funding

Partners Albania and National Resource Center for Civil Society in Albania present the paper on “Crowdfunding Platforms – An Alternative Source of Funding”, which is one of the most innovative methods of fundraising.

The use of crowdfunding platforms (CPs) is growing not only among non-profit organizations, in particular grassroots organizations, but also among for-profit startups and individual projects. In Albania, Crowdfunding platforms are less explored by the civil society sector, but not only. This paper aims to encourage the sector for using this alternative source of funding, which helps them to diversify the funding, as well as deepen the discussion with relevant stakeholders for the creation of a crowdfunding infrastructure in the country.

This publication has been produced with the financial support of the European Union and the Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
