Crowdfunding Community Development

Crowdfunding is a relatively new concept to the UK that is increasingly being adopted by a variety of sectors to raise money for particular ideas.

As a newby to Fiery Spirits, I thought I would introduce SoLoCo, an IPS three of us are setting up to help develop thriving, independent and sustainable communities throughout the UK using crowdfunding as a method to fund, market and develop long term support for projects and ideas.


How does it…

Hi Kirsty


Great stuff and congratulations on the launch of SoLoCo.... It's immediately got me thinking about how we might help to raise awareness of your site via fieryspirits. I'm thinking of creating a 'funding' resource page to create links and (ideally) embed content from SoLoCo and other sites (more conventional funders), a little like we carry feeds from sister ning sites in Fieryspirits themes. Does your site generate RSS feeds that might allow me to do this? Are you thinking of creating a widget that could be embeddded within other social networks?


In any case, very best wishes for this project and I can see it has the potential to help many projects...
