Event description

Description

Join Chuffed.org for a workshop on Crowdfunding with CCVS!

Donation-based crowdfunding is a new way of raising funds and allows you to source money for a project by asking a large number of contributors to donate a small amount, and asking a small number of contributors to donate a large amount. In return, backers may receive token rewards that increase in prestige as the size of the donation increases.

The Workshop

This workshop is hosted by Chuffed.org, one of the leading (free!) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes. During this Workshop, Chuffed.org Communications Manager Rebecca Fitzgerald and CCVS Deputy Chief Executive Mark Freeman will show you how to:

  • Find your crowd (figure out who is going to support your project and why)
  • Tell a specific, inspiring story that your supporters care about
  • Set an achievable target and blow it out of the park
  • Create a marketing and promotion plan for your campaign

As this is a hands-on workshop, places are limited to max. 12 participants.

What previous attendees say

"Thanks very much for an enjoyable and useful workshop, it definitely broadened my understanding of what is possible and confidence to run a campaign. Thanks too for the information and again for your support, it is greatly appreciated." - Trish Appleton-Fox, Centre Manager, The Rainbow Centre for Children

So whether you're new to crowdfunding, planning to run a crowdfunding campaign but don't know where to start or just looking for new ideas for your current or future campaigns, we look forward to see you there!
