Kickstarter Countdown: This Thursday!

Stay tuned to the blog for the launch of our Kickstarter page this Thursday! We'll be offering a ton of great rewards in exchange for your donations, including Philadelphia Sculpture Gym t-shirts, totebags, memberships, sculpture and more! Just in case you haven't heard of Kickstarter, here's a bit more info from their website:

Kickstarter is focused on creative projects. We're a great way for artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers, writers, illustrators, explorers, curators, performers, and others to bring their projects, events, and dreams to life.

The word “project” is just as important as “creative” in defining what works on Kickstarter. A project is something finite with a clear beginning and end. Someone can be held accountable to the framework of a project — a project was either completed or it wasn’t — and there are definable expectations that everyone can agree to. This is imperative for every Kickstarter project.

We know there are a lot of great projects that fall outside of our scope, but Kickstarter is not a place for soliciting donations to causes, charity projects, or general business expenses. Learn more about our project guidelines.

Why donate to a Kickstarter Fund?

REWARDS! Project creators inspire people to open their wallets by offering smart, fun, and tangible rewards (products, benefits, and experiences).
STORIES! Kickstarter projects are efforts by real people to do something they love, something fun, or at least something of note. These stories unfold through blog posts, pics, and videos as people bring their ideas to life. Take a peek around the site and see what we're talking about. Stories abound.

All or nothing funding?

Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands.
