In August 2014, if you opened up your Facebook feed, there was one thing that no-one could escape. The Ice Bucket Challenge. $115M raised, 2.4 million videos created and one question on every fundraiser’s mind: “how do I create my own Ice Bucket Challenge?” At Chuffed.org, we’ve spent the last four years running 1000s of online fundraising campaigns in 27 countries around the world. We can distil down what the difference is between a crowdfunding campaign that succeeds and one that fails. The answer: the successful campaigns follow a particular process. In this workshop -whether you're online or attending in...

Raise more for less with compelling storytelling  Without the marketing budget of a Mission Australia, Smith Family or Red Cross, it’s hard to get your charity’s message out there, but there’s one thing that you have that is more powerful in getting donations than any marketing budget - your story. A well told story will connect your donors (prospective and existing) to the emotional experiences and real issue your organisation is addressing. “Emotions are the gateway to deep, meaningful relationships with donors” Vanessa Chase Lockshin- raised over 10 million in donations as a professional fundraiser. How do you tell your...

Behind The Scenes: How Edgar’s Mission built a 330,000 person Facebook page - and why you probably shouldn't. In 2003, Pam Ahern started up Edgar’s Mission, a not-for-profit sanctuary for rescued farmed animals located 70 km outside of Melbourne in Willowmavin, Victoria. Over the next decade, not only did the number of animals at Edgar’s grow, but the fanbase that followed them online did too. At the start of 2012, they had 5,500 likes on their Facebook page. By the start of 2013, that had leapt to 16,500. By the start of 2014, we were at 41,000 and by mid-2018,...

How to stop Adani When multi-billionaire, Gautam Adani, decided he wanted to build one of largest coal mines in the world in Queensland, very little stood in his way. The then Queensland Labour Government and the Federal Liberal Government not only rubber-stamped it but offered Adani taxpayer-funded loans and subsidies. The local communities wanted the jobs that Adani dangled. The only thing that stood in his way? The rest of us. In less than 5 years, everyday Australians managed to get all the major banks to refuse financing for Adani, to get the Federal Government to back down on its...
