Webinar Watch: How to use crowdfunding for a bike project

June 18, 2015

Michael Andersen, Green Lane Project staff writer

Twice in the last two years, we’ve written about protected bike lane projects that began with temporary demos, then used online crowdfunding campaigns to rally public support and raise a little bit of the cash needed to plan or build the project.

Next month, the civic crowdfunding platform behind both of those efforts is hosting a webinar about how other cities and organizations can follow suit.

Have a great idea for a project that helps make your community more bikeable or helps to get more of your neighbors on bikes? Need to raise some cash or find more volunteers to make it happen? Join the nationwide, nonprofit crowdfunding platform ioby (in our back yards) for a free introductory webinar including tips for successful campaign planning, proven grassroots fundraising techniques, inspiring stories of successfully funded bike-related projects, and Q&A.

The one-hour webinar is noon Eastern time on Thursday, July 9. You can register here, and in the meantime you could checkĀ out our archive of webinars about protected bike lanes.

The Green Lane Project helps U.S. cities build better bike lanes to create low-stress streets. You can follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook or sign up for our weekly news digest about protected bike lanes. Story tip? Write [email protected]
