Crowdfunding has become a novel and popular financing channel worldwide; however, the success rate of crowdfunding projects on most platforms is less than 50%. Thus, project proponents should not only try to attract more visitors but also understand their funding intention, which is particularly important in increasing the success of fundraising projects. Based on social exchange theory, this study examines the key factors influencing backers’ funding intention. More than 204 experienced backers in Taiwan participated in this study, and structural equation modeling was applied for data analysis. Results show that commitment has a remarkable and positive effect on funding intention. Interestingly, perceived risk was found to be positively associated with funding intention, which challenges the conventional view of perceived risk having a negative effect on usage intention. The moderating effects of regulatory focus and funding amount are also discussed. This study not only indicates the key determinates of backers’ funding intention for management but also explains the potential significance of positive perceived risk in funding intention to the literature.
