Yes, business and nonprofit entities can raise funds for projects on Kickstarter. See our eligibility requirements for further details.
Nonprofits and charitable organizations can use Kickstarter to raise funds for specific projects or endeavors making something new and shareable, but not for general support for their cause or mission. You're welcome to include information about donating future proceeds to charity on your project page, but it must be clear that no funds raised on Kickstarter will be donated. And, of course, as with planning any project on Kickstarter, it's important to look at Our Rules before getting started.
Please note: Kickstarter cannot provide advice about taxes, including how to provide receipts evidencing any tax deductibility of pledges. Creators should contact a lawyer or financial professional for any tax-related questions.
