Thanks for the great list of platforms! There is a new one that I want to mention: Impact Trader ( http://www.impacttrader.com/ ) Impact Trader is an alternative stock market where you can buy zero-interest Impact Bonds to fund Social Enterprise projects. Once the JOBS Act goes into effect, these Impact Trader will begin offering for-profit investing in social enterprises. This will allow people with any amount of money to get into Impact Investing.

Hi Kerry! That's a great collection of sites you mention. I'd just like to add our own crowdfunding site - Go Get Funding (http://gogetfunding.com). We launched in late 2011 and have helped individuals and businesses raise several thousands of dollars so far. We continue to grow thanks in part to our innovative social features. Also, just a note that Profounder (mentioned in your article) is now shutting down. All the best! Sam
Hello guys, One more player in your list...

We would like to raise our Internet visibility and spread the word.

Check out our newly launched www.ricebowlproject.com, the first to integrate crowdfunding with social entrepreneurship. We organize by end causes and project type. We are looking to launch projects on August 1, so anyone interested in posting should submit a project proposal by July 21.
Great post here! Do you know of any fundraising software that is available to non-profits that will allow the artists in our community to launch their own campaigns via our website? (For example, we love Kickstarter, but they have not released their API) We are an arts non-profit and foundation, so we would like to maintain our brand, but offer a great service to the artists we serve. To be clear: We don't want to post a single fundraising page for our non-profit. We would like artists to land on our site and develop their own campaigns. Their donors/contributors would receive a tax-deductible donation via our non-profit. Thanks for your feedback and ideas!
Hi - I would just like to add that Buzzbnk allows social enterprises to raise not just donations, plus also pre-sales and 3 different types of loans (revenue participation, fixed interest rate and principle only). Buzzbnk itself is a social enterprise founded by leading foundations in the UK and over 70% of profits will be reinvested in the social enterprise community. Theresa@buzzbnk.org
There is another new crowdfunding site GreenFunder that just launched last week: www.greenfunder.com
Hi Stacy, didn't know that, very cool. Thanks for sharing! I just spent time in CrowdFlower's San Francisco offices yesterday.
There is a crowdfunding platform dedicated solely to funding educational projects, the website is called Funding 4 Learning, www.funding4learning.com, I think that this type of websites are interesting initiatives.
We are launching Bloom VC (Venture Catalyst) in Scotland. Our goal is to make funding startups, community projects and social ventures easier, safer and more people-oriented. We enable startup ventures to raise funds without diluting equity or losing control of the project, and we will also provide the support required to help all new ventures blossom. www.bloomvc.com is our holding site, which is currently taking registrations (some of the projects are amazing) and we'll launch our beta site in summer. We are also on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bloom-VC/1119336455...
