New website promotes crowdfunding for nonprofit agencies
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City man is preparing to launch a website that promotes crowdfunding for local nonprofit agencies by giving people a chance to donate small amounts of money and steer it toward their chosen causes.
The Kansas City Star reported Tim Racer's Daily Deeds website is scheduled to go live next week. He believes it is the first of its kind in the country.
The site will let small nonprofit agencies fill out a 12-question form on the website to describe how much money they need and specific things the money will buy.
People who have signed up as donors can review nonprofit appeals and can send a donation - as little as $1 - to their desired charity from money they have deposited.
