Description :

Are you a budding change-maker or social entrepreneur with great ideas to help make the world a better place? Have you ever thought of using crowdfunding to put your ideas into practice, start your own project or support a cause that matters to you, but you don’t know where to start? Then, this workshop is made for you!

What is crowdfunding?

Donation and reward based crowdfunding are a new way of raising funds that 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.

What will you learn during this workshop?

This workshop is hosted by, one of the leading (free!) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes.

During this Workshop, Community Leader Henry will share success stories and crowdfunding strategies based on the thousands of campaigns that have run on Chuffed and show you how to:

  • Find your audience (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 a team and create momentum to start your campaign
  • Create a promotion plan for your campaign

You will be able to apply these strategies to your own project during break-out sessions, exchange with others and get feedback during group discussions. Get inspired and be part of the local community of changemakers by joining the workshop and the Chuffed community!
