Equity Crowdfunding Webinar

Crowdfunding is an evolving method of raising cash over the Internet. It most commonly has been used with reward websites such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo and features product or other rewards for a contribution. It has generally not been used to offer and sell securities. That is about to change. New final regulations proposed by the SEC will allow an exemption that will allow small businesses to offer and sell equity or ownership of their business online through a third party. It does so by creating a new entity – a funding portal – and allows these platforms to facilitate the offer and sale of securities.

Two Fundraising Cultures: From Fundraising to Friendraising

Network for Good

The Two Fundraising Cultures model is a systems archetype which mirrors similar behavioral patterns that are observable in many other aspects of our personal and professional lives. For our purposes, the “shifting the burden archetype” distinguishes between a fundraising culture that consistently shifts the burden for additional support to initial and often trivial gifts versus a culture that relies on meaningful relationships as the pathway to meaningful and significant levels of support.

Nonprofit Accountability & Stewardship — Fundamentals of Nonprofit Accounting

Aplos

A key difference in for-profit and nonprofit standards is the concept of fund accounting, which focuses on accountability and stewardship rather than profitability. For-profit entities have a general ledger, which is a single self-balancing account — while nonprofits typically have a number of general ledgers, or funds. This accounting framework enables these organizations to separate resources into various accounts in order to identify individual sources of funds and their use. And since nonprofit organizations receive many benefits as tax-exempt organizations, they must keep detailed records about contributions, assets, and expenses.
