Crowdfunding [kroud-fuhnd-ing] noun, the act of many people contributing money to a project in exchange for a good or service, esp. to expand and democratize opportunity: crowdfund the album; crowdfund the start-up; crowdfund the research; crowdfund the event

Concept origin: historical practice of public patronage of arts and science (e.g., Medici funded da Vinci). Today via the Internet artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and social leaders receive smaller amounts from many public patrons, who get something they value in return.
