Chuffed.org & Volunteer Centre Bath Crowdfunding for Social Causes (Beginners) Workshop - Bath
5:30pm - 8:30pm
Join Chuffed.org and Volunteer Centre Bath & beyond 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.
Let’s make a difference across Bath!
This workshop is hosted by Chuffed.org, one of the leading (free) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes. During this Workshop, Chuffed.org Communication & Events Manager Rebecca Fitzgerald will take you through Crowdfunding 101 and real-life examples of successful campaigns that have been run across Bath and other parts of the United Kingdom. You will be given a unique insight into inspiring campaigns with social causes at their core. We will show you how to:
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
Create a marketing and promotion plan for your campaign
As this is a hands-on workshop, places are limited to max. 15 participants.
