Crowdfunding with Steunactie
Crowdfunding exists of 2 words: 'crowd' or a (large) group of people, and 'funding', meaning to provide money. The terms sums up the concept exactly: the provision of money by a (large) group of people.
Whilst individuals belonging to the 'crowd' each donate a relatively small amount of money to a project, charity or cause, collectively a large total amount of funds can be raised that can actually make a difference and have impact. People that otherwise could not get a project financed and off the ground can suddenly tap into a large pool of people and make their goal or cause become reality.
