Crowdfunding might be a good way to find new forms of income. It can give you the chance to reach an extended audience, it reduces time, costs and the usual effort of fundraising. It attracts not only donors but could also lead to more volunteers. In many cases you’ll use a crowdfunding website that does a lot of work for you, has a new donor base for your youth group and uses different social media combined to spread the word.
It sounds good, doesn’t it? However, a crowdfunding campaign is not something that you can put up overnight. Every successful campaign requires planning, images, a good video and a well-thought follow-up plan. To know whether crowdfunding could be something for your organisation, it might be good to first think about possible advantages and risks.
