Community Funded sprouted in the spring of 2011 from a back-patio discussion between Blue Hovatter and McCabe Callahan regarding a better way to encourage collaboration amongst communities of people. They had an it moment. Inspired by the clarity of their vision they began the process of creating a tool that would allow people to work together to make good ideas happen.
Ryan Stover joined the team after having his own it moment when presented with the concept. Ryan’s creativity helped transform the concept from ideas to designs and together the trio continued to develop and expand upon the Community Funded concept.
Looking for website development expertise, they called on old friend and expert programmer, Matt Price. The talented Matt Price gave life to the images and ideas that Blue, McCabe and Ryan called Community Funded. Matt committed to building the website full-time after seeing it’s potential.
Social-media guru Amy Alcorn got it immediately and joined the crew to share CF with the world. She quickly became an integral part of the team as she continued to refine and spread the Community Funded message. Amy now heads CF’s marketing efforts as well as being a driving force in the development of the CF Agents of Change program.
Community Funded LLC was officially formed on 11.11.11. and since then has spent every free moment filling white boards, notebooks, and design documents with big ideas; developing the best tools to create vibrant, connected communities who maximize their resources and better fund their shared visions.
