Abstract: The aim of the article is to present and analyze the different models of crowdfunding, including the role they can play in the financing of economic activity. Crowdfunding is becoming increasingly used form of financing from one year to another. This is an opportunity for entrepreneurs just starting their business, charities, and individuals who have business ideas but lack of the funds for their implementation. Polish entrepreneurs are also increasingly using it. Not only the number and value of transactions but also the number of crowdfunding platforms is growing up. Adapting legal solutions to the needs of the market is likely to cause even greater interest in this form of financing.
