A way of raising money to finance projects. It enables fundraisers to collect money from a large number of funders via online platforms.

Designing crowdfunding campaigns

Training opportunities on how to design a crowdfunding campaign are being offered by Web2Learn. The training series titled “Fundraising for cultural heritage: from donations to crowdfunding and the role of citizen engagement” started with 2 webinars, currently recorded:

  1. Introduction to crowdfunding for cultural heritage: possibilities, aims and examples.
  2. Crowdfunding in practice: insights from an Irish museum.

This series along with a Guide to running a successful crowdfunding campaign are essential parts of the overall process.

Crowdfunding and citizen engagement

Web2Learn’s contribution aims to train cultural heritage professionals in understanding and using crowdfunding not as a separate and exclusively financial-oriented activity, but as an integral part of citizen engagement and community building actions organised by cultural heritage organisations.
