Event description

Description

In May 2016 the Royal Voluntary Service ran a Kickstarter campaign to digitise their UNESCO UK Memory of the World inscribed Narrative Reports for the Second World War. In one month over 700 people stepped up to help them smash their £25,000 target. Could you achieve the same?

This course is crowd fundraising 101:

  • What different types of crowdfunding are there?

  • What websites can you set up a fundraising campaign on- and which is right for your campaign?

  • How can archives benefit from crowdsourcing?

  • What should your online campaign strategy include?

  • How can you spread the word about your campaign?

These are some of the questions we shall be answering on the day.


This course is aimed at all those actively involved in digital communication and fundraising for archives projects and sites.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, including lunch.

We are very pleased to be able to offer all attendees a fully-funded place on every Fundraising for Archives course. However, as our events have running costs funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, we ask that you only register for a place if you will be able to attend on the day, and if you do become unable to attend, please give us as much notice as you can, so that we can make the most of all places available. If you need to cancel your place please email us at: fundraisingforarchives@nationalarchives.gsi.gov.uk
