Crowdfunding 101 workshop
Crowdfunding is becoming an increasingly popular way of generating funds, raising awareness and building stronger communities for charities of all sizes. But how do you know if it’s right for you?
This is a full day, interactive workshop so please come prepared for lots of practical examples, exercises and to share ideas and experiences. You will leave with the beginnings of a strategy and plan for crowdfunding for your cause.
The workshop will cover:
• The different types of crowdfunding.
• What makes a good (and bad) crowdfunding campaign.
• The relevance and benefits of crowdfunding for your cause.
• When to crowdfund, and what for.
• The skills and resources needed to deliver.
• How to choose a crowdfunding platform.
