Crowdfunding 101: How-To, Tips, & Strategies for Fundraising
Crowdfunding is a significant movement in fundraising – donation and reward-based projects alone brought in $5.5 billion dollars in 2015, and it’s only gone up from there. To some, crowdfunding feels like an intimidating, unpredictable process and to others, it feels like mundane fundraising as usual. If your organization is considering a crowdfunding campaign, we will show you how these feelings don’t have to be true.
When built strategically, crowdfunding campaigns not only raise funds, but also grow your donor network, and generate momentum around the organization’s mission. The process of building a campaign isn’t rocket science, but there are some important strategies that every leader should know before they start. Join us for this webinar and we’ll walk you through what crowdfunding is (and isn’t!), how to build a campaign that generates excitement and funds, and, how to have fun doing it!
