WHERE TO START?

Why not Kickstarter or Indie Gogo?

• Bottom line, no control. • No consistent messaging or branding • Projects can be created by anyone. • Groups starting projects need access to Alumni email lists which we don’t give to anyone. • We can’t keep track of who gives. (new donors)

PAYMENT PROCESSING HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER

WE COULD TOTALLY BUILD OUR OWN S I T E !

OH CRAP, N OW WE HAVE TO BUILD OUR OWN.

AND WE HAV E ONLY A F E W WEEKS TO DO IT!
