Room: Eastern Market

There are several new models enabling individuals to invest in companies, lend to small businesses or innovatively donate their dollars to spur asset building in low-income communities. This session brings together leaders within the crowdfunding and nonprofit domains to discuss the potential and challenges of using crowdfunding as a tool to promote asset-building projects. Attendees will leave this session with a better understanding of the crowdfunding landscape for nonprofits and the small businesses and individuals their organizations serve, and tips and ideas for potential campaigns.
