Final Week of IN CrowdFunding Campaign. Join us!

July 15

Now in it's final week, the IN CrowdFunding Campaign is coming to a close.

Crowdfunding is a method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family, tenants, community members. This fundraising approach taps into a large pool of individuals—primarily online via social media and crowdfunding platforms—and leverages their networks for greater reach and exposure.

In support of Innovation Works, we launched the IN CrowdFunding Campaign as an opportunity for social innovators, community leaders, friends and supporters of Innovation Works to show their commitment to making a difference for our community.   Our growing team of IN Crowd supporters will be reaching out to their networks to invite friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to join the IN Crowd and help spark social innovation and change.

The IN Crowd is made up of visionaries, trailblazers and socially-minded change-makers who care about creating vibrant communities. To date, over 100 individual, business and organization donors have contributed over $25,000. It's not too late to participate.  But hurry, campaign closes soon!

Your support – at whatever level fits your philanthropic budget – will help fund the next phase of our renovations. Plans include new community spaces such as a Solutions Lab, event space, a satellite Edgar & Joe’s Café, meeting rooms and a Community Collaboration Space. These spaces will bring people together by animating, provoking and supporting activities that promote citizen engagement, community initiatives and cross-sector collaboration. Events and programs such as collaboration forums, change labs, exhibits and speaker series will foster connections among social innovators, while the shared space serves as a platform for innovation and positive social transformation.

Your gift will be recognized on our IN Crowd digital donor wall, featured on our Innovation Works Website and displayed prominently at Innovation Works.  Your name will be highlighted in a colour and font size according to your donation.  You'll also have your name name indelibly emblazoned on you own personal IN Crowd Tote Bag!
