The newest craze for crowdfunding in Fort Collins is locally based Community Funded.
Success stories include the nonprofit organization SpokesBUZZ, which was able to raise $5,030 for its new BandSwap program through Community Funded. BandSwap will send five Fort Collins bands to host cities across the country, where they will perform with local bands. The following weekend the bands will return to Fort Collins with their host city bands to perform.
“This is what people will use in the future to launch ideas and businesses,” Callahan said. “Overall I can’t imagine it (Community Funded) going any other way.”
