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.

Set an achievable target and blow it out of the park
Create a marketing and promotion plan for your campaign
As this is a hands-on workshop, places are limited to max. 15 participants.
