Let's Get Together and Make a Difference: Experiencing a Community in Donation-Based Crowdfunding

This research shows that activating community perception in donation-based crowdfunding campaigns increases donation giving. The effect is mediated by prospective donors' sense of connectedness to other donors. The effect is stronger when prospective donors experience fear of social exclusion and is attenuated when they feel socially secure.
