Crowdfunding Workshop for Heritage Projects

Tuesday 14th March
The Quaker Meeting House in Liverpool, 22 School Lane, Liverpool L1 3BT
09:30 – 13:00

Heritage Lottery Fund, Crowdfunder and Nesta, the UK’s innovation Foundation, are delighted to invite you to this ½ day workshop on crowdfunding for heritage projects.

This free workshop will be split into two parts. In part one you will get an introduction to what crowdfunding is and how it can be used to fund heritage projects. In part two you will learn how to set up a crowdfunding campaign for your heritage project and how you can access between £1,000 and £10,000 for your project from Heritage Lottery Fund who are currently matchfunding crowdfunding projects.

At the workshop you will have the opportunity to learn from Crowdfunder, the UK’s largest crowdfunding platform on how to setup and run a crowdfunding campaign and how to combine crowdfunding with a match from traditional funders such as the HLF.

We will also be talking about the experience of projects that have previously run a successful campaign in the heritage sector. This includes the Dundee based RRS Discovery who raised £41,795 (including a £10,000 match from HLF) for their restoration project and the Cornwall based Montol 10th Anniversary Appeal who raised £4,000 including a £1,000 match from HLF, to continue their festival focusing on celebrating the traditions of the Cornish Christmas.

To attend the workshop, please RSVP here.
