Great roundup of reasons, Vipin. I’ve worked with a number of organizations on crowdfunding campaigns and I might add two other reasons these campaigns fail: unreasonable fundraising goals (usually way too ambitious) and failure to recruit a solid group of funders ready to commit to the campaign as well as commit to matching other donations.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of finding campaign ambassadors, as well, which you so aptly point out at the top of your blog post.

Hey Debra,

Thanks so much for your feedback! I have to agree wholeheartedly with the two reasons you’ve added. Ambition plus action is usually a solid equation for success, but the ratio of either has to be just right!
