Great overview of crowdfunding with specifics that make it seem more doable for a newbie. Clear, concise language that was straightforward and even handed (mentioning the competition in a balanced manner)

Very timely presentation, and well done. I already had a meeting set up with one of our volunteers to create our Giving Tuesday plan, and will now incorporate that into a larger crowdfunding plan.

This was a great introduction to Crowdfunding. The process feels more accessible and less daunting after participating in Dana O's (DepositaGift.com) session.

Joe's description of this webinar was spot on: It was an information-packed webinar. I kept wondering how Dana was going to get to things she kept saying she would cover later on, and she actually made lots more progress toward that goal than I had expected.

A wealth of information shared within just that one hour. I am always looking for the 'take-away' when participating in webinars, seminars, etc.; I am happy to say that this truly exceeded my expectations.
Molly Morris reviewed Wed, Oct 21, 2015 at 07:13PM UTC
What a wealth of information. It was exactly what I was looking for. I sit on the board of a few non-profits and I will be taking this information back to them and review in our strategic planning meetings. Thank you so much.
