Patreon What is Patreon? Patreon is an online service that allows fans of your organization to become exclusive members in exchange for monthly donations and, if you choose to offer it, exclusive content not usually available to the general public. Tiered content is available for those able to donate more each month. Website: patreon.com or, if you're looking to start or support non-profits, check out their notable non-profits. How is Patreon used for Causes? Animal shelters have different tiers for different levels of care. $10 may help a single animal whereas $100 helps a shelter care for animals that would otherwise be euthanized. Organizations may allow patrons benefits ranging from ad free content to becoming board or team members depending on their donation tier. Building a community of people who believe that particular Cause is important. Ready to donate? There are things you need to know first.
