Fundraising Clinic – Crowd funding and Social Media

IFC logoA First Friday event

Crowd funding and Social Media are increasingly important for charities – this session will take you through how to create an effective crowd funding campaign and how to use social media to build an engaged online community around your organisation.

Dolma Beresford, Director at The Meridian Trust, will tell you how to harness your audience’s online habits to find real fundraising capital.

Donna will discuss a real-life case study to help examine how to create well thought out projects, how to use social media to raise awareness and how to set – and achieve  the maximum fundraising goal.
She will talk through how an effective crowd funding campaign can be created from inception to delivery and how to create crowdfunding-cartoonhigh impact campaigns from low financial input, whilst raising awareness of your organisation’s vital issues, passions and projects, and creating a ‘buzz’ around your work on social media, bringing an online community together for your campaign.
Crowd funding and social media is increasingly important for charities, not for profits and social enterprises. The number one reason people log on to the internet is to check social media status – harnessing this can enhance response rates to ‘calls for action’ very significantly without the need for annoying direct mail which can often ‘lose’ potential supporters and funders.

Social media is the optimum vehicle for all modern organisations to communicate with their supporters. Your community can expand locally and globally to reach those people that believe in what you are doing. This world can be harnessed and turned into fundraising capital.
