A Community Fundraiser for Quelab
Crowdfunding has become a popular – and useful – way of raising funds
for projects of all sorts, from movies to games, hardware,
organizations and more. But while thousands have joined sites like
Kickstarter and IndieGoGo to help take their project to the next
level, the majority of projects are still not funded.
This workshop will help run the numbers and share what it takes to
develop your solid project idea into a good candidate for funding from
the wider community. Bringing together experienced pros from several
community organizations, you’ll learn:
· Advantages and Disadvantages of different crowdfunding platforms
· Structuring the incentives your provide to your funders
· Budgeting to account for incentives, processing and other fees
· Honing your message
· Promoting your project
· …and more
