Why Your Crowdfunding Campaign Might Fail (And How To Avoid It)


Two-thirds of crowdfunding campaigns fail (surprised? neither are we) and every time a crowdfunding campaign works, it seems to be…accidental. But it doesn’t have to be that way! (Really!) There are common denominators to failed campaigns, and a formula organizations can tap into for crowdfunding success. Explore both, with real-world examples and an assessment for your own organization, to ensure your nonprofit’s crowdfunding campaign meets—and exceeds—your goals.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the biggest obstacles to successful nonprofit crowdfunding
  • Walk away with an “Organizational Readiness” checklist for crowdfunding to overcome those obstacles and get set up for success
  • Draw insight and inspiration from real-world examples of the most - and least - successful crowdfunding campaigns
