Crowdfund Blog: Week 1

Day 5 of Impact Arts’ first ever Crowdfund campaign is drawing to a close, so we thought we’d share some thoughts on our first week!

We launched The Young Gallery crowdfund on Monday 14th October at 9am, and until now, we’ve raised £1045! Not bad for 5 days, eh?

The whole team is bubbling with enthusiasm; from participants, staff and managers, to our Board of Directors.

We’ve got so much planned for the next 5 weeks, with the announcement of our famous patron (more on that later!) and staff fundraisers that will get you laughing your socks off at how far we’ll go to make the campaign a success.

“What’s been popular this week?” I hear you ask. We’ve received the most pledges for our £10 reward package. This brilliant reward includes getting your name on our online hall of fame as a supporter of The Young Gallery plus a beautiful original art postcard (a print of artwork created by children who have taken part in The Young Gallery programme).

Some of our higher pledge rewards contain invitations to an exclusive exhibition by a famous artist. This artist will also be designing the invitation, and 50 lucky pledgees will get a SIGNED version! We had originally planned to announce the name of The Young Gallery’s patron on the 21.10.13 but since we‘re a bit of a tease we thought we would leave you hanging till the 28th of October.

Don’t despair because in the meantime we’re going to play a little game of Guess Who! Each day from Monday 21.10.13 we’ll release a carefully worded clue on Twitter and Facebook so that you can have a guess. Feel free to put your answers online – we want to create a buzz worthy of this amazing artist ahead of the big reveal.

So adieu until Monday, please keep sharing our campaign with friends and family and let’s try to get up to £1500 by next week! Remember, you can pledge here!
