For many people, the hardest and most overwhelming part of preparing a grant request or crowdfunding campaign is the budget. This program breaks down the basics of what a budget should include, as well as how to create budgets that are clear and realistic. Areas discussed include the budget narrative, direct costs, shared costs or in-kind contributions, and matching grants. This program also explores what makes a successful crowdfunding campaign, from understanding the funding platform rules and fees to creating a pitch video and using social media to grow your base of supporters and donors. There is an art to knowing just what perks to offer donors for their various levels of support, and winning a grant often has more to do with building solid fiscal relationships than the merits of the project alone. This program is essential viewing if you are trying to raise money for that dream project! Click here for a preview clip. Part of the series Crowdfunding and Grants.
