CrowdRise is a for profit e-ecommerce company website that uses crowdsourcing to raise charitable donations. CrowdRise was founded by Edward Norton, Shauna Robertson, and the founders of Moosejaw, Robert and Jeffrey Wolfe.
CrowdRise's fundraising model is dedicated to the idea that if you make giving back fun, that more people will do it and will raise more money that they would have otherwise. The platform uses gamification and a rewards point system to engage users to participate in fundraising and donating.
