What is Fund That Sound?
Fund That Sound is an innovative crowd funding platform providing a direct link between fans, families, brands, private companies, and artists in order to create transparent “win-win” results for all parties involved. It is restricted to a handful of exclusive, high quality music projects, which are subject to a strict selection process.
This service is provided by the Non-profit foundation Fund That Sound. The foundation has been created by a pioneering team of renowned international producers and experienced music professionals. Our team is very aware of the downfalls of the music industry and want to take action in order to reinvent the essence of music funding.
The Fund That Sound website provides a crowd funding service where the friends, fans and families of artists can make some donations in order to support their projects in exchange for rewards.
How did Fund That Sound start?
In 2015, a team of producers decided to create an exclusive platform to help high level music projects get to the next level. Of course there are already a lots of crowd funding websites in existence. The difference behind Fund that Sound is our focus on quality projects. Our team is composed of some of the most successful producers of Europe, and we have a real network of brands, studios, record companies, etc, which makes us a unique organisation worldwide.

If you wish to donate in nature, or directly to the Foundation, you can contact us by email HERE
If a project doesn’t reach 100%, and is under 70% of its target goal, you will get a refund.
If the project does not reach 100% funding but is above 70% of its target goal, we will work together with the artist to find a possible new plan. We will then contact you in order to tell you what the new plan is. At this time you will have the opportunity to ask for a refund or decide to keep your donation active for the new plan.
Can I cancel my donation?
When you make a donation to an artist, your money is saved on our payment portal account until the project reaches its 100% target goal. Until that moment, you can ask at any time for a refund. You will then receive your donation back minus 8% transaction costs.
When the 100% target is reached, no refund is possible.
If a project reaches 70% of its goal but not 100%, we will discuss a new plan with the artist and contact you in order to inform you of the new project form. You can then decide to ask for a refund, or decide to keep your donation active for the new plan.
How much information do the artists get about the donators?
When the campaign is successfully funded, the artist will get a list of all the names, addresses and email address of the donators, so that they can fulfill their engagements concerning the rewards.
Are the artists trustworthy?
One of the main differences between Fund That Sound and the other crowd funding websites in existence is the strict selection process that we carry out on our hosted projects. If you have any doubts about a project, you can always contact us by email. The artist is also always reachable by email on his or her profile page.
Can I get a receipt of donation and are there any taxes advantages?
Fund That Sound is a Non-profit foundation, which can offer numerous fiscal advantages. You can find all the necessary information on tax deductions here and send us an email if you need a receipt to prove your payments.
