Event description

Description

Join us for a workshop on Crowdfunding!

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 Growth Manager Marlies Kimpe 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. 15 participants.

Fees

  • £20 Discount ticket for existing Chuffed.org Campaigners, Charities and Work.Life members
  • £40* Standard ticket price

About The Speaker

Marlies Kimpe

Marlies Kimpe – Growth Manager

Prior to Chuffed.org, she worked as a Corporate Fundraiser for WaterAid in London, delivering the New Business strategy and securing 6-figure partnerships.

About Work.Life

In coworking, size matters. You won't find us in giant buildings with thousands of cubicles. We believe in intimate spaces, tight-knit communities and, most of all, enjoying every day you spend in the office.

So whether you are a freelancer, growing business, or a global corporate, we have a home for you here.

Our goal is to support our members however we can so our team of membership managers are there in person to deliver a personal service and make sure you have all the essentials taken care of so you can focus on your business. Each of our workspaces features a mix of bright private offices (for teams of 2-60) and creative hot desking space with fully stacked shared kitchens and private phone booths. Every member benefits from the essentials (super-fast 200mb ninja wifi, free meeting rooms and printing) as well as all of the perks to keep your team looking forward to coming to the office.

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!
