Profit isn't the issue, Kickstarter caters for non-profit projects and charities, just as they do for profit oriented projects.
Also, I don't think this is the place to request funding from people. Kickstarter would be the right avenue.
The forum doesn't have the same kind of processes in place to assure people of refunds over unmet goals for example, that kickstarter has. Asking for developer time is ok but not funding.
I loved SAO but I am pretty sure you would have issues with copyright.
first of all I'm asking for donations(not funding), and It's a call to arms for people who love SAO and have developing skills. Second of all I submitted a request to "A-1 Pictures" asking for permission. Thirdly, it technically counts as a non-profit.
