Event description

Description

Join Chuffed.org for a workshop on Crowdfunding for Social Causes!

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

Chuffed.org is one of the leading (free!) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes. During this Workshop, we will give you an introduction to Crowdfunding and take you through the 5 Steps to a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign for Social Causes:

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

About The Speaker

Lucy Graham
In addition to being an experienced workshop facilitator, Lucy is an anti-plastic warrior from Cairns who is set to kayak almost 2,000km from Alaska to Canada next year to bring awareness to the devastating impacts of waste on the environment. Passionate about sustainability, Lucy volunteers for the Tangaroa Blue Foundation, spending days cleaning up beaches in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and on the Cape York Peninsula in far north Queensland. She has been using crowdfunding to raise money for her causes and decided to get on board as a Community Ambassador to help more people raise funds by facilitating crowdfunding workshops in Brisbane. During the workshop, Lucy will be sharing both her own experience as well as learnings from over 5000 social cause projects on Chuffed.org.

Fees

  • $30 Discount ticket for existing Chuffed.org Campaigners, registered charities or QSEC members
  • $60 Standard ticket price
