A master crowdfunder, Amanda Palmer’s band exceeded their $100,000 goal and raised almost $1.2 million – the biggest music crowdfunding project to date!

What can fundraisers learn from this musician? Lots.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Amanda’s talk.

“…the perfect tools aren’t going to help us if we can’t face each other and give and receive fearlessly, but more important, to ask without shame.”

“I think people have been obsessed with the wrong question, which is, ‘How do we make people pay for music?’  What if we started asking, ‘How do we let people pay for music?’ ”

Replace the word music with one of your programs that needs funding, your mission, or your organization!
