Event description

Description

Join us for a workshop on Crowdfunding for Social Causes with Social Ventures Australia!

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

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

Darren Sandford

Chuffed.org Community Leader

Born and raised in Melbourne, Darren spent 25 years in IT in the banking and finance industry. In 2017 he launched his first 'Gift a Birth Certificate in Burundi' crowdfunding campaign on Chuffed.org, which raised $14,000 and smashed the original $8,000 target! In the workshop Darren will be sharing Chuffed.org's key 5 steps to running a successful crowdfunding campaign, drawing both on his own experience as well as the learnings from over 5000 campaigns on Chuffed.org.
