BRINGING ARTISTS AND AUDIENCES CLOSER TOGETHER THAN EVER
EVERYONE NEEDS ART... BUT MOST ART NEEDS MONEY! SO AT
BOOSTED WE'RE HERE TO REMOVE EVERY POSSIBLE BARRIER BETWEEN ARTISTS
Kei Boosted ka taea e te tangata te kimi moni nō te minenga mō
ngā mahi toi.
HOW BOOSTED WORKS
Art is hard. So we've tried hard to make the money bit simple.
Once an artist has an idea that needs money to bring it to life,
they list it on Boosted with a
clear financial target. If someone likes the look of the project,
they can boost it and donate as little
or as much as they like.
When the project hits its financial target inside its time
limit, the artist gets the money (less our 10% admin fee to help
keep the site running) and the Boosters get a tax credit (33% for
donations $5 and up) - and that warm feeling that only comes from
helping someone challenge our thinking through creating art.
And if the project doesn't hit its target in time? We return
your donation (with no fees charged) and we see how we can help the
artist to give it another go. (We're what you call an
all-or-nothing crowdfunding platform.)
Boosting a project is easy. Choose a project and click on
DONATE. You can even do it anonymously if you like, but we'd like
to think that seeing your name and smiling face next to a project
will make people want to join you in supporting it. Whether you
choose to fly below the radar or not, the amount you choose to
donate will never be published.
IT'S NOT JUST THE MONEY, HONEY
On top of making it easy for anyone to fund an arts project,
Boosted is working hard to make the arts community better at the
whole fundraising business. We run workshops and seminars on how to
grow arts giving, and provide tools, tutorials and campaign support
to help grow long-term relationships with donors. And we know this
stuff! Boosted is backed by the Arts
