FundAnything is similar to crowdfunding platforms Kickstarter and Indiegogo, where people with ideas can ask funding and support from backers to kick start their projects. Projects range from citizen science collaborations to business startup enterprises.

Zanker acknowledges the site’s similarity with Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms, but says that FundAnything is meant for the masses. He says, “Crowdfunding got traction with creatives and tech, but you go anywhere but the coasts and they don’t get it yet. What I’m trying to do is bring crowdfunding away from the Brooklyn hipsters and bring it to the masses.”

Insanely-popular businessman Donald Trump echoes his sentiments, saying in a phone interview “So many people need help, and this is a good way of doing it by helping very specific problems.” Trump says that his fundings are meant for people who feel bullied by the economy.

Trump has pledged support to a woman who is raising $40,000 in funds for her husband’s double lung transplant, a singer-songwriter from Nashville who wants to make music videos and an album with $25,000, and a children’s party business who wants to give a party for children affected by Hurricane Sandy for $15,000.

Zanker said that the Donald Trump brand “…stands for money and it stands for luxury, for first class, for being proper. From ‘The Celebrity Apprentice,’ it’s about charity and it’s about building businesses.”
