Event description

Description

Join Chuffed.org and the Queensland Social Enterprise Council (QSEC) 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

Fees

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

As this is a hands-on workshop, places are limited to max. 15 participants.

*Discounts available for registered charities. Please get in touch with rebecca@chuffed.org to request a discount code.
