Crowdfunding for Social Causes Workshop

Join us for a workshop on Crowdfunding for Social Causes! 

Donation-based crowdfunding is a new way of raising funds and allows you to source money for a project by asking a large number of contributors to donate a small amount, and asking a small number of contributors to donate a large amount. In return, backers may receive token rewards that increase in prestige as the size of the donation increases.

The Workshop: is one of the leading (free!) global crowdfunding platforms for social causes. During this Workshop, one of our Chuffed Community Leaders Kieron, will give you an introduction to Crowdfunding and work with you on the 5 Steps for a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign for Social Causes:

Find your crowd (figure out who is going to support your project and why)
Tell a specific, inspiring story that your supporters care about
Set an achievable target and blow it out of the park
Build early momentum
Create a marketing and promotion plan for your campaign

Kieron Safstrom Community Leader

Kieron Safstrom is a nutritionist from Perth, Australia. In his final semester of university, he set up a non-profit organisation Australasian Nutrition Services. After graduating he left for India with plans to promote health, hygiene and nutritional information to disadvantaged groups. Kieron realised that the extent of malnourishment present in India was hard to combat with education alone, therefore began to investigate economical food aid possibilities. He decided that milk was the answer and subsequently Milk4Marks was born. Kieron solely used social media to raise $10,000 in three days on his crowdfunding campaign and now has over $13,500 in funding! Kieron will be walking you through his accelerated approach to crowdfunding and how you can replicate similar results, as well as sharing learnings from the thousands of social cause campaigns on
