It’s an exciting time for artists, musicians, and creative business people. Crowd funding has become an increasingly commonplace way to get financing for creative projects and business ideas.

The concept is simple: Explain what you’re planning to accomplish in a compelling way and offer small incentives to reward people who support your plan. Get a lot of people to give small amounts, enough to fund your project.

This workshop will cover time-tested nonprofit fundraising principals and show you how to apply these principles to your individual crowd funding campaign. You’ll leave with a easy-to-follow framework for planning and implementing a successful crowd funding campaign.

We’ll look at critical elements such as:

  • Setting an appropriate fundraising goal

  • Identifying the potential backers you already know

  • Giving levels and backer rewards

  • Promoting your campaign

  • Writing an effective appeal

We’ll also take a look at some case studies of successful crowd funding campaigns and discuss what made them successful.
