Aberdeenshire Council are running two Crowdfunding surveys one for community groups and and one for businesses.
The surveys of businesses and community groups are being taken in order to obtain a better understanding of the awareness of crowdfunding as an alternative source of finding for projects, and to establish what support for crowdfunding may be required now, or in the future.
With the continued cuts to budgets traditional sources of funding are becoming harder and harder to find.
Using crowdfunding, getting supporters and like-minded people to support a project is often the only way that groups and businesses can complete new projects.
Both the surveys which close on Wednesday 23 March 2016 are completely anonymous unless you choose to provide your contact details. This information will only be used for the purpose of this survey.
