PATREON

It was first designed for artists, musicians and Youtubers.  Artists set up a page on the Patreon website, where patrons can pledge to donate a given amount of money to an artist every time they create a piece of art, optionally setting a monthly maximum. Alternatively a fixed monthly amount can be pledged. This is different from other crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, where artists obtain a single sum after a successful campaign and typically have to start over for every new piece.[3] Similar to other platforms however, artists will often provide rewards for their patrons.[12][13] Patreon takes a 5%commission on pledges.[14]

Patreon is adaptable to fundraising also…It provides a stable ongoing cash flow and can eventually lead to a situation where no more fundraising activity is needed,  saving the fundraising time and expense…

Here’s my patreon page…You can support this website  by pledging $1, $5,  $10 or whatever you feel comfortable with…
