There is a bill (AB 2556) now in the California legislature that is part of an effort to address fundraising disclosure and other rules for crowdfunding platforms such as those hosted by Paypal, Facebook, Indiegogo, Network for Good, and many others.

While many nonprofits have successfully raised funds through these platforms, there are also reports that donations are not getting to nonprofits, that scam artists are raising money for nonprofits but actually taking the money themselves, that platforms are taking large undisclosed cuts of donations, and so forth.

As proposals for regulations emerge, we need to hear more about the lived experiences of nonprofits and donors.

To that end we are asking you to complete survey to share your experiences and perspectives.

There are only 7 questions on this survey; take it HERE.

Thank you, and please take a second to forward the survey to others in your network.
