I've noticed a trend these past few years that Kickstarter is being used more and more for funding anime projects. One such project is the anime English dub that Crunchyroll has announced.

example:

Do you believe this is a better way to get more animation that would previously be out of reach for us fans or just a stunt to get out of paying the high cost? What are your opinions?

Since no one else is going to I'll start first. Please excuse my non-debating talents.

I do think it's a better way to get more animation, but it could be possible they are trying to cut down on costs. A lot of companies do this when they are struggling a tad. Now Crunchyroll may not be struggling at all, and I have no idea about things like that, but that is what I think.
