Join us for a workshop on Crowdfunding for Social Causes!

Donation-based crowdfunding is a new way of raising funds and allows you to source money for a project by asking a large number of contributors to donate a small amount, and asking a small number of contributors to donate a large amount. In return, backers may receive token rewards that increase in prestige as the size of the donation increases.

The Workshop:
Chuffed.org is one of the leading (free!) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes. During this Workshop, our local Chuffed Community Ambassador, Darren Sandford, will give you an introduction to Crowdfunding and work with you on the 5 Steps for a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign for

Social Causes:
- Find your crowd (figure out who is going to support your project and why)
- Tell a specific, inspiring story that your supporters care about
- Set an achievable target and blow it out of the park
- Build early momentum
- Create a marketing and promotion plan for your campaign
- Speaker
