Donation Crowdfunding

Broadly speaking, you can think of any crowdfunding campaign in which there is no financial return to the investors or contributors as donation-based crowdfunding.

Reward crowdfunding

Rewards-based crowdfunding involves individuals contributing to your business in exchange for a "reward," typically a form of the product or service your company offers.

Equity-Based Crowdfunding

Unlike the donation-based and rewards-based methods, equity-based crowdfunding allows contributors to become part-owners of your company by trading capital for equity shares.
