WQED is always looking for new sources of support. A Kickstarter campaign is the perfect platform to reach audiences that we don’t normally have access to. Also, traditional revenue streams have shifted, and this Rick Sebak proposal, “Nebby: Rick Sebak’s Tales of Greater Pittsburgh” can only be produced with funds from a successful Kickstarter campaign. We’re calling this campaign “Rickstarter” because the funding will be directed to a new Rick Sebak series.
Kickstarter allows a donor to make a contribution and opt not to receive any items in return. You will see this option, titled “Make a pledge without a reward” to the right of the screen above the list of levels.
The entire goal of $113,000 must be met before funding will be released to WQED or any individual is charged. If the goal is not met, WQED does not receive any of the contributions to Rickstarter and the donor’s credit card will not be charged.
