Using the Citizinvestor crowdfunding platform, constituents of the Four Mile Run Park neighborhood are seeking to raise $2,000 for a tree planting initiative. Their donation page describes the fund raising initiative as:
“The 4MR Park Community Fall Tree Planting is a community initiative in conjunction with the City of Alexandria’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities and funded in part by the Four Mile Run Farmers & Artisans Market and Action Alexandria who have each awarded $1,000 to the project.”
Similar to other notable crowdfunding sites, such as Kickstarter, funding the initiative through Citizinvestor is an all-or-nothing proposition. Should the 4MR Park Community Fall Tree Planting initiative not meet 100% of their funding goal, all donors are returned their money.
