Patreon is a crowdfunding platform popular with YouTube content creators, musicians, and webcomic artists. It allows artists to obtain funding from their fans or patrons, on a recurring basis, or per work of art.[1] This San Francisco based company was started by musician Jack Conte[wp] and developer Sam Yam in 2013.[2]


Artists set up a page on the Patreon website, where patrons can pledge to donate a given amount of money to an artist every time they create a piece of art, optionally setting a monthly maximum. Alternatively a fixed monthly amount can be pledged. This is different from other crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter[wp], where artists obtain a single sum after a successful campaign and typically have to start over for every new piece.[3] Similar to other platforms however, artists will often provide rewards for their patrons.[4][5] Patreon takes a 5% commission[wp] on pledges.[6]
