'FundRise ' - A Unique Social Enterprise
FundRise is a social enterprise of The WERX Foundation, and we’re opening opportunities for NFP organisations in Australia to build digital community hubs the can provide both fundraising and revenue capacity while strengthening local communities. In particular we use community related marketing to engage locals in community activities, promote local businesses and community organisations, to build local resources and open new volunteer and work pathways.
2020 – 2021
OPEN TO NFP ORGANISATIONS
If you are a NFP providing community or environmental services and seeking an opportunity to increase revenue – the FundRise Project 2020-2021 has plenty to offer.
We’re looking fo NFP organisations take a lead role as ‘Community Partner’ in their local area. Our partners will work with us on a six (6) month project to
- develop digital community hubs that are pre-designed, content-ready web-spaces
- use our range of digital tools to build a place of community interest
- use hubs to strengthen understanding of your community’s many ‘voices’.
We’ll provide the training and mentoring to help create a meaningful community presence, and assist you to develop business to community relationships that will increase your organisations fundraising and revenue opportunities. You’ll be able to raise revenue through paid promotions of local businesses and organisations wanting to be promoted in your digital community hub.
Community Partners can use the hubs to promote local resources, services, events, and support networks through culturally relevant community noticeboards. In this way, digital community hubs will become the focus point for all local community enquiries.
Community Partners are encouraged to include volunteers within their project work, particularly volunteers who would benefit from skills development, workplace experience and/or a new pathway to employment.
Building Better Communities
Adopting ‘a local first’ framework. the FUNDRISE project gives every township an opportunity to work together across business and community to embrace the needs of its residents, its community services, small business traders, and social wellbeing.
