Top 20 crowdfunding platforms of 2018:
Unlike all the other platforms in this list, which are all one-time donation sites, Patreon is a monthly subscription platform where supporters and donors provide regular monthly contributions, rather than one bulk payment. The goal is not to support a particular project, but to provide ongoing support for a creative venture or artist, such as supporting your favorite webcomic, band or musician, or even your favorite podcast. I support the Canadaland and I Hear Of Sherlock Everywhere podcasts on Patreon, because I enjoy what they do. Canadaland has managed to turn their subscription base into a small-but-powerful media criticism and publishing platform.
