McGill University in Montreal has launched a crowdfunding platform to encourage donations. "McGill donors can now choose specific projects to support – projects that really speak to them – and watch as their support helps change our landscape of learning," said Ayesha Mayan, Director of McGill’s Annual Fund. So we're moving through a very typical evolution in this technology too - from a single dominant player (Kickstarter) to many individual and silo-style platforms. Next (we can only hope) come the aggregators, which will help us choose from providers.
