Crowdfunding Workshop

Crowdfunding Workshop
Friday, June 5, 2015 - 09:30 to 16:30
CO3 Offices (34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast, BT2 7DB)

Crowdfunding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people each for a small amount of money. It has significantly grown in recognition and uses the internet to talk to thousands, if not millions of potential funders. 

Last December, Crowding In, a report by the innovation charity Nesta, estimated that crowdfunding could raise £4.7bn a year for UK charities by 2016.

This one day workshop facilitated by crowdfunding expert, CEO Eleanor Harrison, GlobalGiving UK, will improve your knowledge and skills in crowdfunding in order to fully utilise crowdfunding as a tool to raise income for your organisation. 

What we will cover:

  • The basics of crowdfunding 
  • How to tell your story for success
  • Mapping your network: building and expanding your donor base
  • The communications plan – offline and online – for maximum crowdfunding success
  • Your overall campaign – ensuring you hit yours targets
  • Your crowdfunding action plan

Do you:

1.      Run/ work for a great charity or social enterprise in need of funds for your work?
2.      Want to raise more money online for your work?
3.      Want to learn more about crowdfunding and build your confidence before you take the plunge with a crowdfunding campaign?

If you answered YES to the above questions then this crowdfunding training is for you!

“The training had considerable impact in terms of advising us where to look for donations and how to approach donors as well as how to publicise our project.” Book Relief

“IHMP has received an overwhelming response to our fundraising efforts. We have received more than we had ever expected. The training sessions conducted by you and your colleagues were very helpful in realising this goal.” Dr Ashok, IHMP

“Discovering this course and all the straightforward, effective, free advice to help implement our aspirations was fantastic. We instantly raised loads of money for our charity by following the clear advice given at the workshop. I would love to take most of the credit but it simply rolled in!   The results really have been amazing; not only have we raised more than we ever thought possible; we have reset ourselves bigger goals; we have boundless unstoppable drives of energy; great things are not just possibilities or as they sometimes felt impossibility they are happening quicker than ever.”
