iFundWaterloo - APPROACH TO COMMUNITY INNOVATION
As a community that thrives thanks to its citizen involvement, we’re equipping today’s change agents with a platform to fund their ideas and initiatives, and realize results even faster than ever before.
Inspiring and nurturing our citizens to act is critical to success of our community. We recognize that for many initiatives funding gaps will exist. iFundwaterloo is dedicated to closing these gaps, whatever the initiative, to help bring about continued progress and innovation for us all.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Once you've identified what you want to do, start by filling out the project template on the iFundWaterloo website. Ensure that you have a complete grasp on your costs (i.e. shipping, rewards). Create a detailed cost list and ensure that these costs are captured within your iFund target goal. For example, if you are offering a small tangible gift such as an autographed picture of your team, make sure you include the costs of having pictures printed and identify in your group who will pay for those. Next, reach out to your social network and get new and creative reward ideas. Create a marketing plan to get the word out. This could be as simple as leveraging your social network or reaching out to other groups or organizations in your area to spread the word.
Planning is often overlooked, but the success of a project is highly dependent on the time you put into the planning portion.View all FAQs >
