1. GoFundMe – GoFundMe is the most common crowdfunding platform I’ve seen for college and education costs. Check out how Alexis-Brianna Felix raised over $9,000 for her college education using this platform.
“Total GoFundMe fee: 7.9% + $0.30 per donation.”
2. Upstart – Using Upstart, you can offer a percentage of your future income in exchange for immediate funds. The rate that you can receive (cost of 1% of your future income) is determined based on your past education and experience.
