The Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre (W.TEC) partners with Social Media Week Lagos To present a masterclass, DIY FUNDRAISING: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ONLINE FUNDRAISING.
The Social Media Week (SMW) Lagos 2018 theme “Closer” will explore the intensifying conflict between community and individualism. The conversation will bring together a diversity of perspectives to discuss the most productive ways to harness these forces to drive innovation, improve consumer experiences and bring people together. Informed by the theme DIY FUNDRAISING will teach nonprofits, civil society actors, activists (and anyone with a cause) how to raise funds through building a community of online and offline supporters. The class will review technology that helps to build and strengthen online communities of current and potential donors and supporters.
DIY Fundraising will take place on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 from 4:00pm to 5:15pm and takes place as part of the larger Social Media Week conference hosted in 12 cities around the world. This session will be held at the SMW Lagos Campus located at Landmark Center, Lagos, Nigeria. The event will join over 100 other key notes, panels discussions, master classes, digital installations, co-working spaces, and networking events exploring a wide range of topics including business, entertainment, education, technology and politics.
