Learn: How to crowdfund
About this Event
Salford City Council is launching Crowdfund Salford (on Monday 22nd March 2020), an on-line means of raising finance for local community projects, as a practical example of its Salford Inclusive Economy Strategy. It will use the power of the crowd to help projects in Salford find the funding and support they need to turn their ideas into reality.
It works by providing a website for community groups, start-up businesses, charities, social enterprises and individuals to raise the funds they need by asking a large number of people (the ‘crowd’) for relatively small amounts of money. It offers a tried and tested way for the council to increase community participation and a more inclusive local economy.
We'll be learning about 'How to Crowdfund' and the match funding opportunities available in Salford.
Interested in finding out more about crowdfunding?
The Crowdfunder team will be running a live introductory session suitable for anyone who wants to find out more about this method of fundraising, the potential uses for all sorts of projects and the match funding available in Salford.
The workshop will be in the format of a live, interactive webinar, hosted by a Crowdfunder coach. Content will be relevant to new projects and participants will be able to ask questions via an online chat facility.
While the main content for the workshop will be covered in 50 minutes, we will make time available at the end for the Q&A.
