Crowdfunding Training

Praise for Devin’s crowdfunding training for nonprofit organizations:

Devin “was funny, confident, had a great flow and rapport. Kept things interesting, didn’t get bored. Good stories.” – Cassie Paup, Moab Free Health Clinic

"I loved the reconnaissance scoring. It really helped me know what to shoot for. I also appreciated the formulas to calculate possible campaign revenue. Overall, so many useful paradigms, questions and tips. Very useful presentation." – Michaelann Gardner, United Way of Utah County

"He was very engaging… time flew." – Cheryl Brown

Devin convinced us it was easy and anyone can do this.” – Barbara Camick, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

"Devin was able to apply what we were talking about to our individual situations. Started simple and progressed to information that was new to me." – Eric Barnum

"I liked that Devin used applications within the audience’s own organizations to demonstrate ideas." – Amanda DeRito

"Data conveyed in interesting/creative ways and with humor." – Erin Trim, Youth Garden Project

In March of 2014, Devin Thorpe helped the Community Foundation of Utah to raise over $1 million in a single day for nonprofit organizations statewide. 

Many of the lessons learned have been recorded in his book Crowdfunding for Social Good.

Devin reminds organizations that while crowdfunding does not constitute a complete development plan, no development plan is complete without crowdfunding.

Devin offers training for nonprofit organizations in two formats, half-day (1.5k) and one-hour (1k). Local Utah nonprofits should reach out for local rates.
