Go Get Funding is another alternative to Kickstarter that helps organizations and individuals raise money for projects. The application works much like Kickstarter by giving users a page to share information on their cause or project. The user can add photos, videos and text. Multiple tabs let visitors learn more about the undertaking, view any updates and check overall progress. Stats are also presented so visitors can see how many others have backed the project, the total goal amount and how close the project currently is to the goal. Users can search for and follow projects. Donations start at $1. Each project creator can add rewards for specific donation amounts. The user can see what is available and how much they need to donate to earn that reward.Show more screenshots »
Go Get Funding was founded in December of 2011. The application was designed to give the average person a way to raise funds for any cause, project or event they feel strongly about. The application has received some attention from internet users. It offers a flexible opportunity that isn’t restricted by industry, cause or purpose. Other than that, Go Get Funding is a mirror of Kickstarter and the many other crowd funding websites that have sprung up all over the web.
There are few differences between Go Get Funding and Kickstarter. The site is very similar, right down to the layout. Some users may prefer the colorful design offered by Go Get Funding as well as the versatile posting options. The website accepts a broad collection of projects, from travel, sports and charity to personal endeavors that allow users to support someone in need.
Go Get Funding invites users with a fun blue color scheme and plenty of upbeat images related to the various projects on the site. The design has plenty of energy, even if it isn’t entirely innovative. The fundraiser page layout is very similar to the project pages found on Kickstarter. Users can view a large image or video at the top of the page with text below and stats to the right. Navigation tabs help users find more information and discussions related to a fundraiser.
A new user can join the Go Get Funding community by visiting the top, right corner of the homepage. Small icons are available for users who prefer to sign in with a Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Google or Open ID account. Others can click the silver “Register” button near the top of the page to create a new account. The registration form asks for a username, password and email address. The user is automatically logged in after successfully submitting the form.
Go Get Funding doesn’t charge users to create an account or browse projects. Users can also back projects as often as they want at no additional cost (outside of the donation amount they are agreeing to pledge). The site does take a 2% fee on all funds raised. This is on top of any additional Paypal fees. The 2% fee may be more attractive to users compared to Kickstarter’s 5% deduction on all funded projects.
Go Get Funding is a helpful tool for anyone who has a project, cause or event they need to fund. The website is very upbeat an friendly as well as navigable. Users can create projects for almost any meaningful endeavor, whether they are trying to help a disabled friend or supporting a larger cause. Users can personalize the fundraiser with videos, images and information.
