Creators can use Patreon to build a community and establish a regular monthly income or income per creation. In the past, creators such as artists and musicians could rely on wealthy donors' patronage to finance their work. Patreon follows a similar philosophy, but it instead allows small, regular payments which widen the number of people who can become patrons for the creators.
Patreon is similar to other crowdsourcing platforms, such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo. However, the difference is that while those platforms encourage people to fund untested ideas while Patreon uses crowdfunding to support existing creators.
This list consists of the top-earning Patreon creators in mainstream entertainment, but there are also some notable ones in the Adult space earning a lot from their Patreon channels.
