The Cultural Philanthropy Network meets again on Wednesday 7 March at Drill Hall, Lincoln. This third event will continue to explore potential themes related to all areas of philanthropy. The roundtable sessions are open to those interested and working in the philanthropy and fundraising sectors and are organised in collaboration with Cultivate. Discussion will focus on three areas; ethics, definition and alternative models such as social media and crowdfunding.
Below are some resources and links of existing crowdfunding platforms that Fellows and others can use. The list is not exhaustive and I always welcome suggestions and additions. If you have experience of using any of the platforms to fund your project and idea please let us know, it woud be great to hear your stories.
