Talking about fundraising for social businesses often turns into a conversation about “public funding”, assuming that the main source of income for any social project are tax-funded public resources.
In his 10-year career as a social entrepreneur, our host Roberto has (successfully, chaotically, and – in his own words – sometimes dumbly) explored up to 10 different ways on how to raise funds, including everything from selling bracelets made out of sea plastic to pitching in front of a top philanthropist.
He found out that a fundraising campaign is much more likely to be successful if it is based on a collection of powerful messages and a combination of different sources of income. Of course, each source of funding has its pros and cons, and selecting the one that fits your profile and your project’s developmental stage can be a big challenge.
And that’s where this Skillshare Breakfast comes in! The workshop is targeted towards social entrepreneurs and enterprises, NGOs, activists, or anyone interested in fundraising for social projects.
If this sounds like you, then join us for a fun morning session where we will explore 10 different ways of raising funds, such as sales, grants, contests, loans, public funding, crowdfunding, memberships, and more, their pros and cons, and some real-life examples.
