This can be interpreted as if the crowd funding would make sponsoring
redundant, but if I understand correctly, the giftcards are to be seen
as prepayment for future ticket sales, not extra income.

Can you further specify whether the proposed crowd funding is supposed
to be an additional source of income, to replace (part of) another
source of income such as sponsoring, or just a major shift in the
liquidity timeline? At the meeting yesterday I got the impression that
it was just a way to get some cash flowing in our direction earlier.

I don't like the term "gift" because I'm afraid this term will cause
some people to believe they shouldn't buy them except for the purpose of
gifting them.

Since "voucher" is taken by the funny incrowd snowball system of the
CCC, I'm suggesting "coupon".

None of the listed consequences look terrible, and I generally think
this is a very good idea, if I did understand correctly that it's just a
liquidity shifting scheme. I cannot currently think of any other
negative consequences.
