Principles and practice
Crowd funding is an attractive opportunity – many people, each giving a little, resulting in a lot – but it’s a highly competitive arena and any request for funding has to have a clear, worthwhile objective and broadly based appeal.
These crowd funding principles have been drafted by the ALIA Board of Directors and were confirmed at the ALIA Board meeting on 5 December, 2016.
