Edward Norton’s Charity: New Age of Fundraising

03 Aug

Edward Norton, actor, philanthropist, community organizer, launched a new site that might be just the fundraising ticket for small charities and charitable projects. The hook is getting the word out to multitudes and providing an avenue for even small donations to make an impact. Sometimes, people would love to support a cause, but don’t want to write a check for $10.00.  Crowdrise ( makes it easy.

Charities simply register on the site, ID the donor base and creatively make the case to potential donors. They will raise good money if they do their job and extend their reach well. Then all that’s left to do is express gratitude and do good with the money.

Crowdrise’s impetus? Mr. Norton successfully used a viral method to garner sponsors and raise money for a marathon supporting one of his causes. He raised over a million dollars from small donors. He and two co-founders, Robert and Jeffrey Wolfe, successfully garnered online support through social media and marketing tools such as time-sensitive raffles and give-a-ways.

The site also suggests that individuals post all their volunteer activities on Crowdrise. In addition to looking angelic with all of your good works, you can get friends and FOF to support your causes. More good work with little effort.

Don’t want to create a page? No, problem. Simply, peruse all of the charities and projects that have. You’ll surely find one to support.

If you believe rehabbing feral cats to be a noble cause and get others to agree with the legitimacy of it and your organization, then Crowdrise is the place for you. You’re golden, as long as your non-profit is approved by the IRS and in in the GuideStar database.

Viral, grassroots and good works, now that’s some healthy Kool-Aid:

    My husband and i ended up being quite delighted when Peter could deal with his reports while using the precious recommendations he had from your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to just find yourself handing out tactics which often other folks may have been making money from. And we all take into account we have you to thank for this. The main illustrations you made, the straightforward site menu, the relationships you can help to engender – it’s many sensational, and it is making our son and us know that the topic is excellent, and that’s particularly vital. Thanks for all the pieces!

    I precisely needed to appreciate you again. I am not sure the things that I would’ve sorted out without the entire information discussed by you regarding my subject. This has been the terrifying circumstance in my opinion, but spending time with a new well-written form you handled that forced me to weep with fulfillment. I’m happier for the help and even pray you know what a great job that you are carrying out teaching people today thru your websites. I’m certain you have never met any of us.

    I will be often surfing the net many of the efforts and and so i opt to read substantially, which unfortunately just isn’t typically an excellent matter as a lot of the net resources I find are composed of useless garbage copied from all kinds of other websites. however I gotta say this blog is due to actual fact half decent as well as includes some authentic content, therefore appreciation for splitting the pattern of just copying other peoples’ sites.
