SMCKC Happy Hour with the Nelson Atkins' Young Friends of the Art!
- Community & Culture
- The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City MO
You've heard of crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. They help startup organizations raise money through many donors pledging small amounts.
But what happens once the goal's been met?
Marketing a successfully crowdfunded startup is a challenge being faced by three local nonprofits that have raised more than $50,000 combined through Indiegogo.
On Friday, April 5, 2013, @SMCKC invites you to come help these community startups envision ways to use social media to get their efforts off the ground.
Each of the organizations is supported by Kansas City's Community Capital Fund. CCF supports innovative and measurable community development in Kansas City's historically under-resourced and underinvested communities through thoughtful and targeted programming.
CCF has partnered with Indiegogo to bring innovation to traditional grants through crowdfunding. In addition to helping these campaigns meet their crowdfunding goals, CCF gives technical assistance, seed money, a dollar-for-dollar match, and a bonus for meeting their target amount.
With their fresh dose of capital in hand, CMC, Chestnut Street, and REVEAL are ready to make their plans a reality. But they need YOUR help in integrating social media into their marketing and communications strategy.
So come early to this special SMCKC opportunity. Bring your thinking cap and your head for doing good!
