Slides from presentation by Big Duck and NTEN at DMA Nonprofit Federation Nonprofit Conference in August 2015.
For nonprofits, the fundraising landscape has evolved. Moving beyond the “donate now” button and writing a check, donors want to be actively involved in your cause and help create change together. Harvesting the passion of your community is key to successful fundraising and long-term engagement. In this session, participants learned the differences in crowdfunding vs. peer to peer and how these new tactics can be balanced in your fundraising arsenal. Our discussion included specific examples of successful nonprofit fundraising strategies using crowdfunding and other creative community-led campaigns and tips for how to get started.
