In-kind contributions can be made prior to the start of a crowdfunding campaign. That way our verification partners Locality can review these contributions to make sure that they are fully secured and will not risk the project going ahead should you reach your target.
Because of the importance of verifying in-kind contributions, they cannot be accepted after the point of verification has passed and the campaign is live. While is it possible that through hearing about your project, someone may be willing to come forward with an offer for an item that is in your cost items, we are unable to determine whether that offer will be 100% guaranteed in the event of you hitting your target. We are also unable to determine whether the offer made matches the standard and description of the item that you have in your project budget.
If the item offered is from your wish list, and not from your main cost items, then you are welcome to accept this at any time.
