J&j brings free crowdfunding training to your state

CaringCrowd, proudly sponsored by J&J, is a crowdfunding site exclusively for nonprofits in the global public health arena but all nonprofits are invited to the training.


The on-site training sponsored by J&J’s CaringCrowd covers how to build an effective peer-to-peer or direct appeal crowdfunding or online fundraising campaign. We are looking for state nonprofit associations to host the training for nonprofits in their states. J&J will provide the trainer and training materials at no charge to the host or to the participating nonprofits. See what Utah Nonprofits Association CEO Chris Bray says.

Limited Offer

For 2019, J&J will provide the on-site training for only six state nonprofit associations and their members. If you’re interested in being one of the six states, please schedule a ten-minute call with me by clicking here.
