Indiegogo Launches a Free Service for Personal Projects

Today, popular crowdfunding platform Indiegogo has launched a new service called ‘Indiegogo Life’. This branch of the site is the new destination for people to raise money for a wide range of personal causes. These include emergencies, celebrations, faith, sports, pets, and volunteer related fundraising campaigns. The best part? These projects are free to run – Indiegogo will not charge the typical 4 to 9 % fee for projects posted on Indiegogo Life, whose creators will only have to pay credit card processing fees.

This shift in their service comes after the company has been seeing these kinds of projects gain popularity over the last few years. According to a TechCrunch post, Indiegogo’s CEO Slava Rubin said:

“We’ve always been open to any campaign … In 2010 we started seeing more ‘personal cause’ campaigns like life event fundraisers.”
