Crowdfunding Sessions: How to Raise Money with PEAKS

Our top priority at PEAKS is to work closely with each and every Changemaker interested in exploring crowdfunding as an effective tool for raising money and building expanded donor networks and communities. In an effort to provide personal, hands-on support we would like to invite Changemakers to participate in our Crowdfunding Sessions: How to Raise Money with PEAKS. The sessions will be intimate round-table discussions with PEAKS Founder and Director, Emma Frisch. Participants will learn the concepts of crowdfunding and the benefits of using PEAKS, share their fundraising projects and receive direct feedback, and have the opportunity to ask questions about designing, launching and managing a successful campaign. In each session, our goal is for participants to gain the introductory tools and knowledge they need to feel confident introducing crowdfunding to organization and project stakeholders, and creating their own crowdfunding campaign.


Tuesday, October 15: 12:00 pm -1:30 pm

Tuesday, October 29: 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Stay tuned for upcoming sessions…



In an effort to provide each participant with dedicated attention and support, sessions are limited to three organizations and up to six participants (two representatives per organization). Registration is first come, first serve. If you are placed on the waiting list we will inform you when a spot becomes available. Please fill out the REGISTRATION FORM.

Preparing for your session:

In an effort to maximize how much we learn and discuss in each session, we ask that participants come prepared with a basic understanding of crowdfunding and how to use PEAKS. In order to do so, we ask that participants spend at least one hour reviewing the following materials prior to their session:

- Watch this 2-minute video: How it Works

- Spend at least fifteen minutes browsing campaigns on PEAKS, and skimming the following pages: About, Features, How it Works
