Crowdfunding for Creative Projects and Causes, presented by Cinder Hypki

Online crowdfunding to support creative projects and personal causes has recently skyrocketed. Websites like Kickstarter, RocketHub, Indiegogo, and Baltimore’s own GiveCorps enable artists, creative social activists, and others to find the financial support they need.

Join Cinder Hypki to learn the component skills to create your own successful strategy for a campaign, including strategy & timing, a strong narrative “pitch,” goals, calendar, video, perks and social media.

Cinder Hypki is a nonprofit consultant, artist and teacher. She has taught crowdfunding, grantwriting and fundraising courses and workshops at MICA, UMBC, Creative Alliance, the Urban Arts Leadership Program and various nonprofits, and has mentored many fund seekers through the process.

Space is limited.  Please register by email: grc@prattlibrary.org, or call the Social Science and History Department:  410-396-5320.

This event is being provided by the Grants Collection, a Funding Information Network partner of the Foundation Center, and the Fine Arts and Music Department.

The workshop was very well presented, clear and concise. I found it very helpful. I came in with little knowledge and no experience of crowdfunding and now I feel that I know what to do and how to go about it. It was very clear that preparation and follow through are critical. I will follow up with Ms Hypki to learn more.
