The Ko-fi Story
In 2012 Nigel Pickles (Ko-fi's founder) wanted to thank a creator who had helped with a project. All he could do was 'Like' the content. It felt impersonal. "If only I could buy them a coffee as a thanks". The idea for Ko-fi was born.
Since then, Ko-fi has helped creators receive over $18 million to fund their passions.
