February 16, 2019 9:01 AM | TLC Monadnock (Administrator)

The Local Crowd (TLC) Monadnock is a locally based crowdfunding platform that empowers individuals to support the businesses, organizations and initiatives that grow wealthier and healthier communities in our region. We recently wrapped up the pilot phase of our program. 

In 2018, TLC Monadnock:

Attracted a diversity of campaign teams to develop and launch crowdfunding campaigns on our platform

  • Launched 10 crowdfunding campaigns based in 6 towns in the Monadnock region: Alstead, Chesterfield, Hinsdale, Keene, Peterborough, Winchester
  • Collectively raised $58,256 from 500 supporters (up from $35,146 from 227 supporters in 2017)
  • Seventy percent of TLC Monadnock campaigns met or surpassed their crowdfunding goals (Kickstarter has a 31% success rate)

Successfully raised funds to cover portion of 2019 platform fees and continue past the pilot phase of this project

  • Leveraged TLC Monadnock to raise $2,500 -- allowing us to expand our platform to serve the entire region in 2019
  • The Local Crowd secured a grant from the National Science Foundation to support the Fourth Sector Economy (stay tuned for details in March 2019)
