I've been fundraising since before Facebook. Even before Google existed!
I've seen a lot of fads, tricks, and solid strategies in my time.
Two of the most persistent seem to be bake sales and crowdfunding. (Seriously, a startling number of well meaning supporters still consider holding a bake sale to be a solid nonprofit fundraising strategy!)
Back in the day, crowdfunding was putting change in a jar. With the rise of the internet, crowdfunding has become much easier. And can be much further reaching.
But is crowdfunding right for your nonprofit?
Get Your Crowdfunding Questions Answered
On September 12, I'll be interviewing crowdfunding expert and Nonprofit Academy faculty member Dana Ostomel.
Join us to get your crowdfunding questions answered in this live, no holds barred conversation. I'll asking her tough questions like:
- "Should nonprofits really participate in #GivingTuesday?"
- "How does a nonprofit know if crowdfunding is a bad fit for their fundraising?" and
- "Why do many nonprofit crowdfunding campaigns fail?"
The best part? If you register (it's free), you'll get to ask your own questions!

UPDATED: The crowdfunding conversation is over, but we recorded it!
We had a great time and I learned alot in our crowdfunding conversation. Unfortunately, GoToWebinar didn't record our heads (we were broadcasting ourselves, not just the slides with the questions). But the conversation will certainly help you figure out if crowdfunding like #GivingTuesday is right for you.
