SMCKC April Breakfast: Brainstorm with Community Capital Fund, April 5
You've heard of crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. They help startup organizations raise money through many donors pledging small amounts. 
But what happens once the goal's been met? 
Marketing a successfully crowdfunded startup is a challenge being faced by three local nonprofits that have raised more than $50,000 combined through Indiegogo.
On Friday, April 5, 2013@SMCKC invites you to come help these community startups envision ways to use social media to get their efforts off the ground. We'll meet at Kansas City Cafe (1532 Grand Blvd.) from 7:30 to 9 a.m.
Featured Guests:
  • The Community Meditation Center raised $20,416 for its Preventing Headlines By Changing Lives program, which provides a conflict resolution training experience to more than 30,000 Kansas City residents in areas that are high risk for conflict and violence.
  • Chestnut Street Model Block raised $20,000 in its quest to fight back against blight and deterioration in an area of Kansas City, Missouri abandoned and neglected by city, state, and national government. 
  • REVEAL Historic Northeast raised $12,144 to organize existing civic initiatives in the Historic Northeast KC around a common goal of uplifting the community.
Each of the organizations is supported by Kansas City's Community Capital Fund. CCF supports innovative and measurable community development in Kansas City's historically under-resourced and underinvested communities through thoughtful and targeted programming.
CCF has partnered with Indiegogo to bring innovation to traditional grants through crowdfunding. In addition to helping these campaigns meet their crowdfunding goals, CCF gives technical assistance, seed money, a dollar-for-dollar match, and a bonus for meeting their target amount. 
With their fresh dose of capital in hand, CMC, Chestnut Street, and REVEAL are ready to make their plans a reality. But they need YOUR help in integrating social media into their marketing and communications strategy. 
So come early to this special SMCKC opportunity. Bring your thinking cap and your head for doing good!
