Straight from Texas: Gift a piece of an oil well this holiday season

Source: Crudefunders

For as little as $1,000, you can give your loved one an opportunity to become a real investor in the Texas oil and gas market.

Are you looking for something different to give that special someone in your life? Would you like to give something unique to the person that has everything? Do you want to give a gift that keeps on giving?

Consider, an equity crowdfunding platform exclusively for oil and gas investing. For as little as $1,000, you can give your loved one an opportunity to become a real investor in the Texas oil and gas market. This unique gift can be used by the recipient for any project of their choice in 2017.  Give the gift to a spouse, child, or colleague this year instead of something that will be forgotten by the time the wrapping paper is tossed out. Crudefunders even offers a third party Self Directed IRA option to allow for tax benefits as well as a variety of college savings plans. 

"Previously, only a small group of wealthy individuals had the ability to invest in projects like these," said David Taylor, cofounder of Crudefunders. "Today, anyone can invest in an exploration and production oil and gas project, and this holiday season can be a good time to invest in the oil market. With oil prices where they are, if the well hits, the opportunity for our investors to make returns on their investments is possible." 

Often used in early start-up technology investing, crowdfunding leverages the collective power of individual investors and can even risk more widely. Pioneered by technology platform companies like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, Crudefunders and other crowdfunding companies allow more people to review pre-approved opportunities and ultimately make online investments.

Crudefunders is backed by a team of industry veterans who thoroughly analyze all potential projects before making them available to investors, and Crudefunders only works with credible independent oil and gas companies. The company provides transparency into well and project dynamics, as well as the tools needed to learn about the industry to its more than 6,000 registered investors, and the company encourages communication and values transparency between its experts and investors. This is a real investment with real risks and the team takes this very seriously. We have tools and resources on our site that can guide and educate every step along the way!

Crudefunders is open to any U.S. citizen, free to join, and requires no credit checks. Those interested in learning more about Crudefunders can find additional information online at

This year, instead of buying a cruise, a luxurious golf outing, or even a puppy for the family…invest in their future and give them the gift that teaches them and could potentially benefit them for years to come.
