WORKSHEET: Network Mapping For Crowdfunding Success

Download our network mapping worksheet to visualize the backbone of your crowdfunding campaign—people.



Network mapping is a central step in crowdfunding—the practice of raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically online. Instead of relying on buy-in from a very small pool of wealthy donors or institutions, successful crowdfunders harness the power of many. With this networking mapping worksheet, you’ll be able to easily visualize your network—the donors, influencers, volunteers, and key contacts who are positioned to play an important role in your campaign and help you meet your fundraising goal.

Key Takeaways

This is a one-page worksheet. It will help you:

  • Visualize your network
  • Think outside the box about who can help you achieve your crowdfunding goal
  • Think outside the box about how individuals can help you achieve your crowdfunding goal
  • Categorize your network according to the unique assets each individual can bring to your campaign, including influence in your community, passion for your cause, cash donations to your campaign, time as a volunteer, and expertise in your area of service.


Level: Intermediate
Recommendations: First, to learn more about why network mapping matters, watch this Network Mapping Webinar. Then, set aside an hour or so in the early planning stages of your crowdfunding campaign to map your network with your team. You can print this worksheet, and categorize your contacts on the worksheet, but you’ll probably need more space (especially if you’re following the true spirit of network mapping). Document your network in whatever format makes the most sense for your team!
