A few notes about using CrowdJustice
How long does it take to crowdfund?
Launching a case page with CrowdJustice can be done very quickly - many successful cases on our site have launched within hours, while others begin preparing weeks in advance of launching a page publicly. While case pages are active for 30 days, a well-executed effort can often meet its objectives in a matter of a few days. CrowdJustice understands that legal cases can be complex and has a case support team to help clients develop timelines suitable for your objectives.
Why do people donate to legal cases? Do people who donate have an interest in the outcome?
CrowdJustice a donation-only platform, and funds contributed through the site do not entitle donors to any rights or interest in a case. People donate for many reasons, but primarily they get involved because they understand that legal action can make a tangible difference in people's lives and communities.
How much money can be raised?
Fundraising targets should be tailored to the objectives of each case. In some cases, a small amount may be highly impactful to defray out-of-pocket costs or expert witness fees; other cases may require more extensive funding resources. The CrowdJustice case support team can help clients evaluate appropriate fundraising objectives for your case.
