Crowdfunding has quickly become a new tool in the fundraising toolbox to tap into your network to raise more money, faster, from a larger audience. It is changing the face of nonprofit fundraising as donors come to not only expect, but welcome, a more engaged approached to giving. Forbes reported that 30% of the $5 billion crowdfunded went to social causes, and this trend only continues to rise.

Join us to learn how to incorporate crowdfunding to raise the bar on your fundraising initiatives. Dana Ostomel, Firespring's leading authority on crowdfunding, will walk you through the lifecycle of a campaign, from prep through appreciation, emphasizing how to engage new audiences. Come ready to ask about the campaigns you have in mind so we can get all of your questions answered!
