IncitED is a crowdfunding community created for anyone with an education project that is in need of money. Whether you want to create an after-school program, develop new educational technology, help disadvantaged learners, establish a scholarship fund, or acquire classroom supplies, the possibilities for great education projects are virtually limitless. IncitED makes it easy to build compelling grassroots fundraising campaigns to help make those great projects a reality.
You might be working through a school, nonprofit or community group, but you don't need an organization behind you to join the IncitED community. It doesn’t matter whether you’re inside or outside of a traditional education system; if you have an education project that is meaningful to you and will directly help other people then we encourage you to join us and take the next step to making your project a reality.
