Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am presently working on a large scale academic resource which provides checked, appropriately referenced bibliographic resources across numerous fields of interest from Health to Faith. The project could accommodate reference lists of archives, journal articles, papers, books, films, etc. and would be indexed accordingly. The resource is consistently growing and once sufficiently organised and complete is intended to be digitised and thereby made available to students, as well as the wider public, freely at the point of access in order that society has a medium through which to locate trustworthy resources that has no agenda other than to educate broadly.
I will be able to complete a large majority of the research for the resource myself, but it is the digitisation process and the maintenance of this that will be costly. When the resource reaches a sufficient size, it will need to involve more people than just myself. These last points together are why it requires funding.
