Angel Shares Scotland – the New Crowdfunding Site for the Arts in Scotland is Launched

I wanted to let readers of the blog know about this new fundraising website. Those who attended the February Insights and Ideas event on Philanthropy heard Barclay Price from Arts and Business Scotland talk about the approach that this site uses. “Crowdfunding offers cultural organisations and artists an innovative way of encouraging their audiences to fund their creative work, and enables everyone with an interest in Scotland’s cultural scene to support the country’s creativity.” If you are interested in trying out new ways to attract potential donors, then this site is worth taking a look at. I found the website’s straightforward explanations of Angel Shares and how it works very user-friendly.  All the information you need to take part is there, so check it out today!

  1. I believe that there is significant potential for museums and galleries to raise more donations from individuals and our Angel Shares Scotland crowdfunding site is one interesting new tool to harness fundraising through internet social networks. Facebook and Twitter show the power of the internet to engage people, and to offer innovative ways to create communities of interest. Crowdfunding offers cultural organisations and artists an innovative way of encouraging their audiences to fund their creative work, and enables everyone with an interest in Scotland’s cultural scene to support the country’s creativity. An additional advantage of this particular site is that charities can gain gift aid – something that other crowdfunding sites don’t offer. Barclay Price, Chief Executive Arts & Business Scotland

  2. Thanks for your comment Barclay. It’s particularly useful to have the gift aid advantage of Angel Shares Scotland highlighted. I’d encourage everyone to visit the site, after all, you have nothing to lose by taking a look.
