Event description

You will receive an intensive guide to fundraising in this jam-packed interactive online course, along with a digital workbook to refer to. You will also receive a bespoke 1:1 follow up session with the trainer after the training. 

 

It might not feel like it, but now may actually be a good time for a new fundraising campaign.

 

Many organisations need urgent funding to cover unexpected costs and short-term projects set up in response to the coronavirus crisis. At the same time, community spirit is at an all-time high. With many people working from home and restrictions around activities, some donors might actually have more time and money than usual – and many people are desperate to do something to help.

 

Crowdfunding is a great way to raise vital funds, engage your existing supporter base and attract new donors.

 

Why come on this course?

This course will walk you through all the key stages of a successful crowdfunding campaign, including picking your project and platform, and designing your campaign. You will also receive a workbook to work through.

 

You’ll leave with a clear plan for running a successful crowdfunding campaign for your organisation, and a much stronger understanding of crowdfunding in general.

 

About your trainer

Jes Bailey is an award winning crowdfunding consultant and founder of Crowdfund 360, a highly successful consultancy where 4 out of 5 who go on their training hit and surpass their targets, whereas in general, only 1 in 5 UK crowdfunding campaigns hits their target.

 

She has managed 64 crowdfunding campaigns and helped them raise nearly £3million. She has run over 100 workshops across the UK, Europe and Middle East and worked with the European Commission, UN, Ashoka International and the Swiss Embassy to bring her 6 stages to crowdfunding success to organisations of all sizes. Jes was born and grew up in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

 

"Jes has helped unlock the secrets of crowdfunding and broke down the activities into manageable chunks to ensure the campaign wasn’t too stressful!. The introduction, training and support provided over the 6 weeks ensured that we not only achieved our original target, but also 93% of our “stretch” target.”
