Event description


Join us for a workshop on Crowdfunding for Social Causes!

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.

Let’s make a difference and catalyse massive impact across Belgium!

The Workshop

This workshop is hosted by, one of the leading (free!) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes. During this Workshop, Community Leader Jurgen Mortier will take you through real-life examples of successful campaigns that have been run across Belgium and the world. You wil be given a unique insight into inspiring campaigns with social causes at their core. We will show you how to:

  • 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.
