Funding projects or ventures via crowdfunding is no longer restricted for only those who are tech-savvy or with infinite networks.  It is a legitimate way to connect with hundreds or even thousands of people outside of your existing community, and more importantly, get good work funded.

For non-profit organisations crowdfunding, when done well, can get those blue sky projects funded and give an alternative and dynamic profile to your organisation.

In this webinar, Tom Dawkins Co-Founder and CEO of will share his perspective on the mistakes you want to avoid and what you need to do to give yourself the best chance of success when crowdfunding. In this presentation he will cover:

  • What’s actually new about crowdfunding, and what core principles remain the same
  • Why non-profits can be the best crowdfunders, provided they know how to approach it
  • How to identify your most likely supporters

And much more including the role played by rewards, video, goals and deadlines.

Who should attend?
This webinar is designed for all non-profit staff and volunteers who have an interest in getting projects and ideas funded.
