Over $150 Million Sent to Creators

It’s the most reliable and relaxing way to make a living for creators. Every other way to make money (ads, crowdfunding, merchandise, conventions…) is subject to seasonality and random fluctuations.

Peter Hollens is creating Music Videos

Patrons icon

Patreon not only changed my life, but changed the lives of the people I employ, the 19 contractors and the full-time employees. Because of them, I’m able now to grow a digital media company and help foster this type of creation.

To me, Patreon is the future of the music business. To cut out the middle man and make art accessible directly from the artist to the fan, is one of the beauties of internet.

Wait But Why is creating high-quality blog posts

Patrons icon
4,615 patrons

Creating stuff online is still pretty new and the world hasn’t really figured out a good business model to make it sustainable. Patreon is the best solution to this problem that we’ve come across — a simple way for the people who really want to help support Wait But Why to do so.

The Rubin Report is creating a talk show about big ideas and free speech.

Patrons icon
4,421 patrons
$28,622.74 per month

Joining Patreon was the single best career move I’ve ever made. We started a production company, got new equipment and built a home studio all in the last six months, and this is just the beginning. I’m truly beholden to nobody, well except my dog, and that’s really the greatest gift you can get as a content creator.
