Understanding Kickstarter


People in Davis have used Kickstarter to help fund projects. Learn what it is and how it works in a free class taught by Jeff Tolentino of Davis Makerspace. 

The presentation will include planning and development, donor outreach and campaign management. 

Jeff Tolentino will share his experiences working on a campaign to raise $12,000 for the Sacramento Taiko Dan using Kickstarter, a website for online fundraising (a.k.a. crowdsourcing).

To hear a KDRT interview with a Davis artist who used Kickstarter to pay for his upcoming picture book, go to and listen to the discussion with Jed Alexander, which starts 15 minutes in.
