Crowdfunding is one of the best ways to get funding online without the hassle and red tape delays. All you have to do is to create a product, play with your creativity, and you’re all set.

Nowadays, there are many great ideas that were brought to life with the help of crowdfunding. The up-and-coming Axent Wear headset, for example, raised more than a whopping $2 million (from their initial $250K goal) from more than 10,000 backers.

Some people would take their projects straight to popular crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but if you’re looking to run your own crowdfunding campaign on your own website, then you can do so with WordPress.

WordPress is the best open source content management system (CMS) out there, which is extensible through themes and plugins. Crowdfunding is one of its many features that you can integrate right into your WordPress-powered website.

To get you started, we’re going to showcase some of the very best WordPress theme for building a crowdfunding website. Check out their features and see what works for you best.

Enjoy!
