This brief guide explains what crowdfunding is, what the benefits are for voluntary arts and crafts groups and gives some tips about how to use WeDidThis effectively.
Applying to launch your campaign is easy – WeDidThis, like most crowdfunding websites, has an easy-to-use registration form (http://wedidthis.org.uk/information-artists-and-artsorganisations) to upload your pitch and get you started. You’ll need to prepare:
• Your project pitch – you should describe what your project will consist of and achieve, in around 200 words. Remember, it’s not a funding application but a direct conversation with your supporters, so be clear and compelling about what you’d like to do, and why anyone should fund it. Make sure you include some simple but important details like when and where the project will happen, and how you’ll use the money raised.
