From the organizers:
In this webinar, Caroline Fiore, Development Manager at Farm Aid, will guide market leaders on a variety of techniques and strategies for online fundraising, including hosting effective and engaging online events. Community members are looking for ways to support local food systems and the essential services of farmers markets. Implementing online fundraising events and campaigns can be a great way to fund additional costs of PPE, market staff, and strengthen the financial sustainability of your market.
Participants will learn how they can engage with donors in their community, increase funding for their markets, and make giving online fun for everyone!
We’ll also be joined by Nora Chovanec of Texas Farmers Markets, who will share her experience running a successful online fundraising campaign to cover increasing costs during the pandemic.
- Market operators will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to raise funds to support their markets via a variety of online methods–just in time for National Farmers Market Week! The presentation will wrap up with an open discussion and Q&A.
