Find creative projects that speak to you.

Going “rewardless” is rewarding.

We love a good reward. But sometimes you just want to support creative work, without getting something in return. Last year alone, over 200,000 people backed projects on Kickstarter for no reward, pledging over $15 million to help creators bring their projects to life.

Be a champion of culture. 
When you support a project on Kickstarter, you’re helping bold, inventive new work get made—work that may have an impact on culture for years to come. (
Fleabag, anyone?)

Send out good vibes.
Your support will make a creator’s day, without increasing their shipping budget.

Watch the creative process unfold.
Creators use project updates to share a behind-the-scenes look at the process of bringing their project to life—and to celebrate with backers when their work is out in the world. When you back a project, you’re signed up to receive these updates via email.

Go minimal.
Consider this an opportunity to KonMari your Kickstarter rewards.

Use the hashtag #backeditbecause to let people know why you supported a particular project. We just might retweet you!

Why back a project for no reward?

Back it because you believe in it. 

Support a project for no reward, just because it speaks to you.

How do I back a project for no reward?
Once you’ve found a project you want to support, select the “Back this project” button or scroll down to the box that prompts you to pledge without a reward. Enter your desired amount, then complete the next few steps until you see a thank-you page and receive a confirmation email.

Can I only back projects for no reward in December?
You can make a pledge and opt for no reward at any time, for any amount. But we’ve decided to highlight the practice to our community this December.

How much money can I pledge and still opt for no reward?
As much (or as little) as you like!
