Learn what it takes to take your fundraising to the next level by using microsites for specific campaigns. In this session, Bartlomiej Skorupa, Co-founder and Executive Director of Groundwork Opportunities will share his story of going from e-commerce consulting for Fortune 500 companies to leading a startup nonprofit achieve dynamic growth through the use of personal fundraising campaigns. Whether you are dipping a toe in personalized fundraising or would like to take it to the next level by building your own, Bart will share what he's learned both in the corporate and nonprofit sector that built the most efficient fundraising platforms in the world today.

Specifically, you'll walk away with a clear understanding of how to effectively use microsites for fundraising, where to start with existing services, how to get your community excited about it, and then how to build your own with minimal funding.

Key Takeaways
- Visualize: Develop your campaigns to have specific, tangible results
- Organize: Structure a hierarchy of all your campaigns to help prioritize and manage your contacts
- MicroSize: Utilize existing microsites to promote these individual efforts (or build your own!)
- CrowdRise: Get your fans and ambassadors excited about your efforts
