Crowdfunding (60937-FA-ΒΆ807-$)

Add new Subparagraph after Subparagraph 24:

To provide guidance and consultation to churches, conferences and other United Methodist organizations on fundraising campaigns conducted via the Internet and social media where capital can be solicited from a large pool of potential donors, also known as crowd funding. The GCFA shall prepare a list of approved crowd funding websites. This consultation shall be limited to churches and conferences residing in the United States.

Rationale

We are called to make new disciples. To do this we should reach out to those who may not be a member or familiar with United Methodism through our fund raising appeals. Campaigns that connect people with mission and justice projects are of interest to younger people.
