Description

Learn from our experts in this FREE series for individuals, groups and organisations in Birmingham.

If you're new to crowdfunding and want to learn more about how to make it work for you, you're in the right place! Get the advice you need to start raising money for your idea.

This series, broken down into the three key stages, is suitable for anyone who is thinking about crowdfunding in Birmingham, from charities to social enterprises, sports clubs and community groups. It doesn't matter how much you're trying to raise – the fundamentals to running a successful crowdfund are the same. There will also be an opportunity to get one-to-one guidance for your project.


What's involved?

For each of the three key stages, there is a Crowdfund Birmingham short PDF guide and a live webinar session, where our experts will share their insider knowledge and expertise.

We recommend that you download and read through each guide before joining the corresponding webinar. If you miss one of the live sessions, don't worry - you'll be able to watch it back in your own time. Finally, there is a online Q&A surgery session where you can ask any remaining questions and get tips specifically for your campaign. Using the guides and advice in the webinars, you'll plan, create and run your own Crowdfunder project.

Crowdfund Birmingham

Get even more money for your project with The Community Innovation Fund

Birmingham City Council is offering seed funding for projects that promote health and wellbeing and encourage a more independent, engaged and connected community.

Local projects can raise money from the Crowd, and then apply for funding from the council’s Community Innovation Fund to make their great ideas happen.

The council could pledge between £100 and £10,000 on crowdfunding projects that address the local priorities.

So if you have got something up your sleeve that’s going to make a real difference in Birmingham, then the council could back you to the tune of up to £10,000, or 50% of your funding total (whichever is the lesser).
