John Pointer Posted almost 3 years ago How can we mainstream crowd-funding and invent a next future for non-profit social businesses? Look at http://patronism.com. It's main engine crowdsources ongoing revenue for compelling musicians via pay-what-you-feel subscriptions. This sustained patronage gives patrons unlimited access to that artist's entire stream of creative content, for as long as their subscription is active. They also know that the money is going directly into the creation of more of the very thing that moves them - music. And while this site is designed currently for musicians and patrons, they will open it soon to other artists and causes. They even have plans to create profiles for teachers, doctors, and anyone else to provides valuable services to the community. Imagine the salary bonus and retirement a truly excellent teacher could crowdsource over the course of a 30 year career?
