April 2019 Webinar: Fundraising Through Kickstarter Campaigns

Topic: Fundraising Through Kickstarter Campaigns

Join us on April 23 for presentations about a variety of kickstarter fundraising projects in public radio. During the hour, we will hear the backstory behind each project, the kickstarter goals and processes, results, and insights from the teams behind each initiative. WDET will be presenting on their Framed by WDET project, which was a multi-platform effort that included a multimedia exhibition and printed book. We will be hearing about the fundraising efforts behind re-launching Gothamist, LAist, and DCist from WNYC, KPCC and WAMU.
