Our 2020 Crowdfunder Kick-Off Event: we’ve kicked off!

Last night we had over 160 people join us for our 2020 Crowdfunder Kick-Off Event, to find out how they could support us to achieve our ambitious goals for the years ahead.

We’re incredibly excited about the number of people our Impact Report tells us we could reach and activate to become climate leaders through Climate Conversations. We have an ambitious goal to engage 40,000 people through Climate Conversations over the next three years.

But we can only achieve this if we raise the necessary funds for staff to train and support all the people who want to facilitate and host Climate Conversations each year - and we need your help to do this. 

Having crowdfunded our work until now, we know that our campaign’s success this year will depend on having as many people helping out and fundraising as we can.

We were inspired and excited by seeing so many of you, both familiar and completely new to fundraising, attend our first online Kick-Off event. 

Over the course of the night, we shared some of the stories and key results from our Impact Report, and heard from our Conversation Program team and some of our facilitators. We also heard from former fundraisers who shared their experiences and tips from previous crowdfunders, and were on hand to answer any questions.

Crucially, we also shared our ambitious and exciting plans to expand our reach and impact for the years ahead, and the most impactful way you can help us to achieve those goals: by fundraising in this year’s crowdfunder!

If you want more information about becoming a fundraiser, join our 2020 Fundraisers Facebook group for more details. Otherwise, if you’re keen to jump straight in, you can create your fundraising profile!

We can’t wait to see the climate action we can all achieve together!
