Description

9.30am refreshments for 10am start

Grassroots (Cardiff) Ltd a long-standing youth development charity undertook a Crowdfunding campaign in the summer of 2015. The charity undertook Crowdfunding as a means of replacing a loss of core funding which was formerly awarded to the project from the Local Authority. Grassroots (Cardiff) Ltd has a long history of supporting young people and the charity thought that it could use its local connections to raise funds to maintain a full-time service to some of the city’s most complex and vulnerable young people. The charity undertook a three-month mission to raise a target of £20,000, using the local press, previous clients and social media to promote the campaign.

In this presentation Dan Wilson (Grassroots [Cardiff] Ltd) will talk about the problems and pitfalls and highs and lows of this successful Crowdfunding campaign followed by an informal question and answer session.


Cynhaliodd Grassroots (Cardiff) Ltd, elusen ieuenctid hirsefydledig, ymgyrch Cyllido Torfol yn ystod haf 2015. Trodd yr elusen at ymgyrch Cyllido Torfol fel ffordd o godi arian ar ôl colli’r cyllid craidd yr arferai’r prosiect ei gael gan yr Awdurdod Lleol. Mae gan Grassroots (Cardiff) Ltd hanes hir o gefnogi pobl ifanc ac roedd yr elusen yn meddwl y gallai ddefnyddio ei chysylltiadau lleol i godi arian er mwyn parhau i gynnig gwasanaeth llawn amser i rai o bobl ifanc fwyaf cymhleth ac agored i niwed y ddinas. Cynhaliodd yr elusen ymgyrch dri mis i godi targed o £20,000, gan ddefnyddio’r wasg leol, cleientiaid blaenorol a’r cyfryngau cymdeithasol i hyrwyddo’r ymgyrch.

Yn y cyflwyniad hwn, bydd Dan Wilson (Grassroots [Cardiff] Ltd) yn trafod problemau a meini tramgwydd, uchafbwyntiau ac isafbwyntiau’r ymgyrch Cyllido Torfol, ac yna cynhelir sesiwn holi ac ateb anffurfiol.
