About the Webinar

Looking to increase resident engagement in your work? Need cash quickly for an urgent project? Trying to build an individual donor base to take your nonprofit to the next level? Curious about crowdfunding?

Join us for a webinar with the crowdfunding nonprofit ioby to learn more about how crowdfunding can be both an effective fundraising and community-engagement tool for walkable community advocates.

The webinar will include real-life case studies of successfully-funded walking advocacy projects, crowdfunding myth busting, and best practices for campaign planning, donor prospecting, social media use, and more. You’ll leave with the information you need to decide if, when, and how crowdfunding can best support your goals, and to plan an effective campaign.

Material covered is pertinent to volunteers and informal community groups, as well as nonprofits. No prior fundraising experience required.
