Description

Join us for a workshop on Crowdfunding for Social Causes in partnership with The HiVE!

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 will share the secrets of what it takes to run a successful campaign on Chuffed.org.

During the workshop you will learn 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

Yassaman is constantly looking for opportunities to use her skills and experiences to make positive systemic changes that deliver positive economic, social, and environmental impacts.

During this workshop, Yass will be sharing both her own experiences crowdfunding as well as learnings from over 5000 social cause projects on Chuffed.org.
