Social media non Profits crowdsource
Fundchange and Koodonation invite you to an interactive workshop on social media, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding for charities. If you are going to be in the Toronto area on Wednesday November 23rd, come join us at the TELUS House (25 York Street)! Unfortunately, the morning session is already sold out – but you’re in luck because there’s been a second “lunch and learn” session that’s been added to the schedule. This session will run from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm.
About the Workshop
The format for the workshop will be a mix of seminar with discussion in order for you to learn from the successes of your peers. Workshop speakers include:
- Claire Kerr, Artez Interactive
- Jennifer Robertson, Koodonation
- Paul Dombowsky, Fundchange
The topics to be discussed at the workshop include the following:
- Social media and its impact on fundraising and volunteer recruitment efforts
- Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding – what are they and how can you use them
- Fundchange.com – what is it and how can you participate – learn from 8 months of success
- Koodonation.com – what is it and how can you take advantage of its community of microvolunteers
- Project based fundraising and micro-volunteering, as well as trends in this direction
- Options for engaging a new generation of donors or volunteers
Times are changing and these tools have helped a number of charities and non-profits recruit volunteers and achieve results. If you’re interested in any of these topics and want to learn more about how your charity or non-profit can benefit from crowdsourcing, crowdfunding and social media, we strongly suggest attending this workshop.
An Added Bonus!
As an added bonus, half of the proceeds from ticket sales for this workshop will be donated to one of the charities that is in attendance – consider it to be a “technology-free” crowdfunding exercise. The other half of the proceeds will go to cover event expenses. We invite you to come prepared to write a short pitch for a small project that you would like to have funded. Participants will also receive FREE memberships to Fundchange.
