About this Event

Picture this...

You've got a great idea for a social, charitable or community focused cause. There's just one problem... you don't have enough funding.

Sound familiar? That's where we can help.

We’ve teamed up with global crowdfunding platform, Chuffed.org, to deliver this half day workshop. Whether you want to tackle homelessness, fund a local community sports group, or anything in between, the aim of this session is to help you to make a difference!

Carl Francis, Engagement and Support Manager at Chuffed.org, will walk us through the 5 Steps of creating a successful crowdfunding campaign. We'll talk about finding your audience, telling your story in the right way, setting the right target, building momentum and creating a promotion plan. If you've got a project that needs to be funded, come along!

The Workshop Agenda

The 3-hour intensive workshop covers the 5 key ingredients that occur in our most successful campaigns.

1. Audience targeting: Reach the biggest audience possible by learning what drives different types of donors to support you.

2. Event copy: Get everyone to share your campaign by crafting the perfect campaign pitch.

3. Set the right fundraising target: Discover how much you can raise- and what you can do to raise even more.

4. Make it exciting to donate: Learn how to build early momentum in your campaign using perks, matched giving and other techniques that make your audience excited to donate.

5. Campaign planning: Reach a huge audience with the perfect campaign strategy.

You’ll get the opportunity to pitch your idea and get feedback from your colleagues in the room.
