However you see your vision---pen-and-ink, oil and canvas, wood and stone, leather and lace---explain the tools you use, what sparks your imagination, where your creation can be enjoyed (or purchased), and how long it takes to produce your finished work.
Books & Publications
When your thoughts grow too large to squeeze comfortably into a blog, and your stories need the touch of fresh, crisp paper to come alive, share your thoughts with the world with FunderHut. Whether you are writing a magazine, book, or comic, help users understand the ways they can honor your writing process, while helping you overcome the publication hurdle.
Business & Entrepreneurship
Banks and venture capitalists were the traditional providers of financial backing for entrepreneurial start-ups and business projects. Things have changed---we now use the power of the crowd to create a world of difference. Entrepreneurs and established businesses create jobs, grow our economy, and make communities thrive. Make your best "elevator speech" here, and you could turn your vision into reality.
Charity & Volunteering
When natural disasters and tragic events tug at your emotions, you can utilize the internet to reach friends, family, and your wider community to raise funds that aid a just cause. Define your goal to put money in the hands of those who need it most.
Spin a globe and stop it with your finger. Wherever it lands, a creative person will think of ways to revitalize that unique place. You could sweep the streets or build a playground. Did you land the ocean? No worries! You can create a recycling project that helps reduce water pollution, thereby saving a "community" of fish. Where you start improving doesn't matter---but how you start does. Create your FunderHut project today and get funds flowing toward the place of your choosing.
People sense our world through its lines, colors, patterns, shapes, motions and sounds. As a designer, your daily work is to actively sculpt these elements into new, wonderful, and thought-provoking elements. Whether you bring forth a fashionable sweater, originate a signage system for a community garden, or craft a uniquely shaped teapot, let your fellow FunderHut users help fund the tools you need to transform the objects and space in which we live!
Education & Tuition
With the cost of schooling rising astronomically, consider Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jeffrey Eugenide's observation that, "Biology gives you a brain. Life turns it into a mind."FunderHut gives brains the opportunity to become mindful once the pesky issue of tuition (not to mention textbooks) has been handled. Generous members can help ensure that no mind, engaged in learning, is wasted. Whether it’s funding tuition, a class field-trip, or a science project, we all benefit from an educated society!
Film & Documentaries
Films and documentaries open the world of adventure, drama, love, and truth to many audiences. They are moving reels of expression as seen through the eyes of visionaries. The only thing that should hold you back is your own imagination, but of course equipment, actors, props, and the other necessities of film making come at a price. FunderHut embraces the creative mind by inviting users to help fund the experience.
Games & Entertainment
Before Monopoly was completely funded, Park Place had no Boardwalk... and Connect Four could only Connect Three. Don't let today's board- and digital-game designers launch their creations with missing components! Fun is fun; but funding fun is real fun – so let’s be fun and fund one! Have fun!
Think global. Fund local. The result: ecological wisdom and sustainable living that spreads forward from you to future generations. We invite you to rejoice in going green by putting some of your green in the game. Your mother would be proud to know you're supporting ideas that reduce your carbon footprint, and honoring healthy lifestyles.
Internet & Applications
Close your eyes and imagine your day-to-day routine without the help and convenience of the internet and your phone apps. When the initial shock passes, hop on FunderHut and fund the next Google today! Oh, and Angry Birds too.
Medical & Medical Tourism
Patients are traveling abroad in record numbers for everything from cosmetic surgeries and cancer care, to organ transplants and stem cell therapy, for two main reasons: to avoid long waiting lists and to take advantage of reduced fees. Even so, these treatments can cost and arm and a leg. If these participants' stories move you, help fund what we all require: our good health!
When you least expect it, life can throw a curveball at you or someone you care about. When your rainy-day jar is nearing empty, reach out to your community during your time of need. Share your story and get the support you need to get back on your feet. And don’t forget to repay the favor when others are in need!
School Organizations & Clubs
While we encourage people to have fun and work together in the real world, you can acquire round-the-clock dough for your bake sale fund with a well-designed FunderHut fundraiser. Use the power of email to reach friends and family. Lots of small donations can add up to those new band uniforms you're seeking!
Social & Civic Organizations
Whether your community provides a meeting hall, golf course or pool, it will be strengthened by neighbors working together. FunderHut salutes projects that keep kids away from drugs, feed wholesome meals to those in need, and provide summer camp experiences for our youth.
From the most basic tools to complex machinery, the race is on to develop mechanisms that simplify our lives (while also making them more fun). Whatever its purpose, properly funded technology can bring us all to the next level of communication, efficiency, or entertainment. So let’s land another rover on Mars!
