5 Crowdfunding Ideas That Are Hot This Summer

By Krystal Gandola 

Idea #1: Fund a Gap Year for a High School Graduate

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 11.10.23 AM

British students have been doing this for years. Basically, a gap year is when a student takes a year off after high school to gain experience in the real world. This could mean traveling the world, completing an internship at (fill in your dream company), building a house for a needy family, or starting that archaeological excavation you always dreamed of doing in your backyard.

Who ever knew helping that special teenager in your life could be this fun?

To learn more about the gap year phenomenon in America, listen to NPR’s rockin podcast on the topic. For some Fundly inspiration, browse our successful Trip and Adventure fundraisers going on right now.

Idea #2: Help a Budding Novelist Write the Next Great American Novel

blog2

You know those perfect summer days? The ones spent lounging by your favorite beach, pool, or park and reading that book you have been wanting to read for months? Sigh.

It is an undeniable fact that people love good books, be it summer or winter. How awesome would it be if you could be an integral part of the creation of the ultimately cool book: the next “great” American novel?

Help that starving novelist eat more than mac and cheese while they contemplate the grand human experience. Fund an American writer and support the creative arts!

Idea #3: Score the 2018 World Cup Trophy for the U.S. by Supporting a Youth Soccer League

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 11.10.48 AM

Soccer fever is at an all time high in the great US-of-A. More Americans tuned in to watch the 2014 World Cup than any other in history! And it’s no surprise, after Tim Howard’s record saves for the Yanks.

With more than 20 million American kids participating in youth soccer, it is only a matter of time before the next Mia Hamm, Lionel Messi, or David Beckham comes along.

Help find the next great American contender by supporting a local youth soccer league. Donations can go to offset the costs of sports equipment, traveling expenses, or team uniforms. Go team, go! Check out the awesome sports fundraisers going on now.

Idea #4: Hire an Ice Cream Truck for the Day and Give Out Free Cones

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 11.11.04 AM

July is National Ice Cream Month. Why not celebrate by raising funds to give ice cream to kids in your local community? You could even park outside a local homeless shelter and hand out ice cream to kids going through tough times.

Don’t forget to share the love with the adults in your life, who could use a cone or two (or three).  Hire a truck for your company fundraiser, neighborhood party, or your local church group.

Check out this Florida guy, who raised over $1,000 and gave out free ice cream on his birthday.

Idea #5: Forgo the Traditional Wedding Registry and Fundraise for your Future instead

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 11.11.23 AM

Engaged couples around the world have been hand-picking Waterford crystal glasses, oil drizzle dispensers, and monogrammed towel sets for centuries. If fine china sets aren’t your thing, we have a solution! These days, couples are opting to raise money for travel adventures, their favorite charity, or their future home.

Start your own wedding fund, and see what others have done before you.

SC Phenoms Advance To Nationals

Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 11.52.09 AM

By Valerie Gaffney Thomas

To allow 4 high school athletes to compete at Junior Olympics and reach the goals they have set for themselves. #HARDWORKWORKSHARD #JUMPSQUAD

Four SC PHENOMS athletes have powered-through district qualifier and national qualifier advancing to the National Junior Olympics! You can help them get there… without even breaking a sweat. We’re so proud of these students and their commitment to improvement. They train no less than 5 days a week to achieve their goals, and the results speak for themselves.

Our team, the SC Phenoms, has earned 15 medals in 3 events this summer; including eight gold, four silver and three bronze medals in track and field. Adanma, Nia and Frankie all jumped national elite numbers this summer. Frankie Thomas even set a new state high jump record this season. Now their hard at work training for the Nationals… but they need your support.

The Junior Olympics begin on July 26 in Des Moines, Iowa, and we have to raise approximately $12,300 in order to compete. There are airfare expenses, as well as lodging, meals, entry fees, equipment, and car rentals. Without assistance, our team could end up watching the games from their living rooms instead of the Olympic grounds.

We are hopeful that our community of friends and family will recognize the value in supporting these young achievers. After all, an investment in their future brings promise to our own. Would you please lend a hand to our ambitious students as they prepare for the obstacles ahead? Let’s show that we care about their efforts and are pulling for them as a community of supporters. This way, they can focus on the field of competition… knowing that we’ve got their backs.

Thank you for your consideration… and LET’S GO SC PHENOMS!!!!

Adaptive Surf Project

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 11.23.11 AM

By James Samaha

Thanks to many generous donations, our first goal of having three adaptive surfboards built for some local surfers with spinal cord injuries, in the Myrtle Beach SC area, has been achieved! The project called “Adaptive Surf Project” is now on phase 2, “10 for 10.” We are now planning to build 10 more boards for $10,000. Any donation is appreciated and will go directly to paying for these custom boards to be built. Now that we have the first 3 built we will be looking for volunteers to get together once a month or so, (or even more frequently) to help these guys surf. We are hoping to get them out in the water a lot this summer.  Please share with your friends! And thanks for taking a minute to check us out! #adaptivesurfproject #liferollson #sharethestoke #oceancure #wheeltosurf #ASP10for10
