Improve Your Success at Online Fundraising

Book your place today for an upcoming workshop on the secrets of Crowdfunding.




What is Crowdfunding anyway?

On one hand, crowdfunding is as old an idea as rattling a tin in the marketplace. Today, however, the word has assumed a new meaning. The term is now more usually associated with the activity of raising funds online. 

We define crowdfunding more precisely as raising a specific sum for a specific project within a specific timeframe.

Sounds simple. In essence, it is simple. And it can deliver astounding results. A GlobalGiving crowdfunding project raises on average £3974! But to be successful you will need to acquire a variety of new skills. Join a workshop or webinar.

What will this Workshop help me do?

  • You will understand the basic mechanics of fundraising online.
  • How to develop a precise strategy and action plan.
  • How to map your networks and so expand your donor base.
  • How to pitch your fundraising project successfully to an online audience.
  • The skill to tell your story succinctly so as to create the maximum impact.
  • How to have a 'sexy' online digital presence.
  • How to use this new knowledge and skills to make YOUR crowdfunding campaign a success!
