Patreon makes it possible for creators and artists to get paid for their creations by empowering them to do what they love. We send thousands of checks to creators every month, allowing creators to quit their job at the grocery store, or work one less day a week at the coffee shop. Creators have even been able to hire employees from patronage on our site to help them build their own media companies.
Everyone in the Patreon family is deeply invested in the mission of paying creators. Our goal is nothing short of changing the very way in which creators are paid for their work, moving from ad-supported creations back to “old-school” Medici style patronage.
