Contributing is rewarding
We’ve found that people usually contribute to events for five different reasons: community, cause, passion, participation, and perks.
Often, people contribute to support other people—maybe contributing to the campaign of a friend or another inspiring individual. Others contribute because they’re passionate about a mission, such as the environment or a social problem . Others are motivated by a desire to participate in something big, like starting a movement in their cities.
And often, people contribute to receive perks, the cool things or experiences they get in return for their contributions.
