Help for charities and social enterprises looking at crowdfunding
Brighton Chamber has teamed up with Crowdfunder to host a session on crowdfunding aimed at charities and social enterprises wanting to start raising funds in this way and wanting to know what a successful campaign looks like.
The session is on Wednesday 13 March and will focus on rewards-based crowdfunding – what it is, how you can use it to raise funds and grow your network, and the tips and tricks to creating a successful campaign for your charity or social enterprise.
Crowdfunding is creating social, economical and community-led impacts across the UK, not only allowing communities and charities to raise funds, but also raising awareness and support to help make great ideas happen.
The session is led by Jason Nuttall from Crowdfunder. Jason has spent several years securing grants and contracts for charities and social enterprises, and at Crowdfunder he now develops partnerships with match funders.
Crowdfunder’s mission is to tackle society’s challenges by making ideas happen, and is the UK’s #1 community crowdfunding platform, having raised over £58million for projects across the UK.
Jason Nuttall said “Crowdfunding has a range of benefits for charities and social enterprises, of course it's a great way of raising funds, but it also provides an opportunity to learn new skills, reach new audiences and grow networks. We have some great examples of local organisations which have used crowdfunding effectively, and I'm looking forward to supporting more Brighton & Hove organisations to follow in their footsteps.”
During this session, two local projects - Simon from Stoneham Bakehouse and Jess from Brighton & Hove Food Partnership – will speak about their experience using crowdfunding.
Attendees will take part in some interactive exercises to really get to grips with creating a crowdfunding project, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. There will also be an exciting opportunity to win £1000 towards your first crowdfunding campaign, supported by CriSeren Foundation.
Book now and take the first step towards your crowdfunding project!
