RE

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATION (CCDO-MALAWI) CROWDFUNDING, PROJECT MANAGER

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES INITIAL VERSION JUNE 30-2022



The

success of crowdfunding campaigns is directly tied to the passion, commitment,

and dedication of the project manager (project manager defined as the

individual facilitating the project which is seeking funds; this is not

intended to be a development professional). Unlike other fundraising efforts,

the project manager is directly responsible for: Pre-campaign of Writing and

gaining approval by unit leader, unit development office (if using the UA

platform), and Crowdfunding Committee of a Project Plan for writing a 1-3

paragraph statement about the project. This statement should quickly answer the

"who, what, when, why." Most importantly, it should describe why this project

is important and how it will make an impact on UA students, faculty, and/or

communities served. The message should be clear, concise, and easily inform the

reader how the money raised will be used for creating a brief 1-3 minute video

with your 'pitch’ or case for support. Studies have shown that campaigns with a

video are 114% more likely to reach their goals. Videos should be personal, but

clearly expressing the goals of the campaign. Slides, chart, and still images

might also be integrated. Videos must be authentic and do NOT need to be

professionally produced or be costly.



A

simple video recorded on a still video camera or even a mobile device will

suffice. Deciding if there are any stewardship benefits associated with giving

levels. Stewardship benefits should not (may not for projects on the Scale Funder

UA platform) have any tangible or monetary value. Instead, they should focus on

individual stewardship, engagement, and acts of appreciation for determining

four to five giving levels. It is highly recommended that giving levels range

between $25 and $2,500; however this can be adjusted based on the project of writing

a brief message of appreciation/thanks to send to the funder once a

contribution is made. On the Scale Funder platform, this will be sent

automatically to initiating and supporting request for usage of a third-party

platform if applicable. Please note that while UA will attempt to enter into a

contract agreement with the third party, the ability to do so cannot be

guaranteed for assuring that accounts are set up to receive funds from the

crowdfunding effort for obtaining final approval of the crowdfunding site

content prior to launch a Campaign for Outreach of the project is reliant upon

the project leader and his/her team. This component is essential to any

campaign as a vast majority of funders will be in some way tied either

personally or professionally to campaign team. ! As soon as the project’s site

is launched, the project team should send personal emails to friends, family,

colleagues, constituents, and fans.



Funds

from this community will make up a substantial portion of the project to encourage

these folks to not only support the project, but to forward the information

onto others that might have interest in the project. Post links to the campaign

project on personal and professional social media sites to work with University

Relations on possible communications strategy if approved by the

departmental/college/center administration, post links on UA unit webpages and

in other collateral. Project leaders will post 3-4 updates on the project

during the duration of the campaign. These updates will not only keep the

project from being static, but also provide updates on fundraising progress,

exciting project developments, or new/novel information relevant to the subject

matter of the project. These updates will not only be posted on the

crowdfunding site, but should also be pushed out by the project team to their

initial audience. Project leads may also use the functionality of the

crowdfunding site to provide public thanks, encouragement, and appreciation as

funders make gifts. Post campaign follow-up message should be sent to all

funders 7-10 days after the completion of the project solicitation period. This

message is one of appreciation and should update the funders as appropriate. Once

the funds are spent and utilized for the completion of the project for which

funds were raised, a message should be sent updating funders on the success of

the project. o All stewardship offerings should be fulfilled within 30 days of

completion of the campaign or as agreed upon based upon statements made on the

crowdfunding sit
