Crowdfunding Action Learning Program

Crowdfunding Action Learning Program


In 2014, Croatan Institute developed an action learning program, in partnership with WealthWorks, the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, and the Ford Foundation, in order for WealthWorks sector-based value chains to launch their own crowdfunding campaigns. This program is now available more broadly to interested organizations and provides  interactive training and additional technical support to create and launch crowdfunding fundraising campaigns online. In the process, it also transforms the connectedness of the participating organizations by helping them identify circles of supporters for their work well beyond one crowdfunding campaign.

Croatan Institute is currently organizing a training session for the fall of 2017. Learn more about the program here, or please get in touch with Christi Electris.
