Generopolis Fundraising Tool Brown Bag Lunch & Workshop

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cbn-brown-bag-lunch-workshop-generopolis-fundraising-tool-tickets-55138016291

RSVP requested. Please let us know you’re coming using the link above.

Join CBN's Organizational Capacity Building Committee and Meghan Winegrad, founder of St. Louis-based fundraising tool and platform Generopolis, for a discussion about how your organization and your supporters can start using Generopolis to bring in new revenue for your work.

Generopolis is inspired by the success of Facebook marketplace/swap & sell, Craigslist, and other online platforms that offer individuals and small businesses opportunities to sell gently used items, services, and more. Generopolis mimics these platforms and integrates with them, but allows participants to donate proceeds to a local nonprofit of their choice. The platform aims to empower those who are socially conscious but cash-constrained to serve the community in ways that are relevant to them.

Meghan will be sharing more information about how local nonprofits, businesses, and residents can sign up for the platform (it’s free!) and start raising funds for their favorite causes. Learn more here in their brief overview video.

Please bring your lunch and spend an hour learning with us!
