"Great plugin for creating kickstarter type websites. Many options and very easy to set up."
Fundraising for WordPress has everything you need to manage a simple personal fundraiser or a complete crowdfunding network.

With five included style templates, a powerful in-post shortcode generator and built-in widgets, integrating Fundraising with your existing theme couldn’t be easier.
Fundraising works perfectly with Multisite and BuddyPress making it easy to build and manage an entire crowdfunding network.
Take donations as they are given or only when a project is completely funded.
Goals and Rewards
