About Ko-fi

The friendly way to fund your passions.

Ko-fi

In 2012 Nigel was looking for a way to thank an online creator who had helped him with a project. All he could do was 'Like' the creator's content. It felt too impersonal. "If only I could buy them a coffee". The idea for Ko-fi was born.

Now over 150k creators choose Ko-fi as the fast, fun and friendly way to ask for support from their fans. Ko-fi has helped all kinds of creators from illustrators to cosplayers receive over $5,000,000.

Ko-fi doesn’t take a cut of donations and we hate ads. We fund the service via Ko-fi Gold, an optional $6 monthly subscription.
