Crowdfunding is the process of convincing typically a large group of people to contribute small sums of money toward a specific project, usually via the Internet. At a time when the media is struggling to fund serious journalism, crowdfunding is helping redefine what's possible -- whether you’re raising money for one story or a new organization. Today, there are hundreds of crowdfunding sites worldwide. Most crowdfunded journalism projects raise modest amounts, but there are some notable big successes. What's the secret to a successful campaign? What tools do you use? Here are journalists with first-hand experience in the field -- from a million-Euro startup in Germany to an investigative center in Brazil and an online publisher in Malaysia.
