Speaker: Beatriz Irarrázaval, La Sobremesa

NPOs and Funding for Civic Tech Organisations

Summary

For Civic Tech practitioners, sustainability is particularly challenging. This workshop was presented by Beatriz Irarrázaval from La Sobremesa who presented an overview of a fundraising plan, and shared recommendations around how to create one, based on the experience of Latin American civic tech organizations that have gone through the same process. A fundraising plan is a key tool to ensure organisational survival over time. It allows a team to identify the axes that need to be worked on, as well as the  strengths in which to rely. It establishes a work plan considering its ecosystem, value-add, and the lines of actions more suitable to its mission.
