    Most projects are able to raise $5,000 or less. The majority of donors will come from your family, friends, and other personal networks. Do you know enough people that will donate to your project to reach your goal? The larger the team and the larger the networks, the more money you will be able to raise. Remember, it is important to set a realistic goal so that your campaign is successful. Start with the lowest goal possible—you can always add in stretch goals later.
