One of the great rewards that comes with investing in a Kickstarter project is that the updates from the project mangers are frequent, creative, meaningful, and typically deliver clarity about the impact of my investment. I think this model provides a template for many social sector organizations. I am often struck that a $50 investment in Kickstarter project provides me with a behind the scenes looks as the projects develops. It is not always pretty but you see inventors and creators sharing their journey. Compare this to a $500 contribution to a nonprofit that may get me a form letter recognizing my donation and perhaps mention in the annual report. Which one do you think a philanthropically minded investor is most likely to recall when it comes time to reinvest?
