DreamFund.com is taking crowdfunding to a whole new level, by putting the donated funds into an FDIC insured savings account, allowing people to raise money through giving circles for their biggest dreams. CEO Kent Plunkett says, “DreamFund started with two important beliefs: that people of all ages struggle to save for the things they strive for, whether that’s a great cause, an experience of a lifetime or an awesome purchase. The second part is that people are inherently generous, both in spirit and in money. Bringing those people together in an easy, affordable, and inspiring way to make dreams come true is the aim of DreamFund.” CMO Peter Crosby adds, “Just this month alone, our site helped a teen pay for a trip to dance championships in Scotland, a charity get car seats for their clients with cerebral palsy, and a family raise the money to rebuild from a fire. I get to be part of that process every day, and it’s the best work of my life. I’m so grateful.” Please consider whether a friend or colleague might benefit from this piece and, if so, share it.
