How will a Patron pledge appear on my campaign?

Patron pledges will be made in 2 ways, depending on the preferences of the Patron:

  • Patron pledges directly to your campaign (without choosing an incentive), using their own Seed&Spark account, OR

  • Patron sends us their committed pledge in advance, and notifies us with the project to support and the amount to allocate. Seed&Spark will pledge on their behalf (without choosing an incentive), using the [email protected]&Spark account.

How will I be notified if my campaign is selected for a Patron pledge?

There is no special Patron pledge notification! Just like other pledges, you’ll be notified of a Patron pledge via your Creator Dashboard when the pledge is made. The pledge will either be made under the Patron’s name, or under the [email protected]&Spark account (which we’ll share on social media, tagging the Patron and the project when applicable).

What can I expect from a Patron?

The Patrons’ relationship to crowdfunding campaigns abides by Seed&Spark’s Supporter Terms of Service.
