On the twelfth day of crowdfunding, let’s take a look at this – twelve partners pledging!

Welcome to The 12 Days Of Crowdfunding… a celebration of our top picks from 2017 – and trust me, there were a lot to choose from. We take our hats off to all of our project owners, who are a collection of some of the finest changemakers out there. They are working hard everyday to make their mark on communities across the whole of the UK, with the help of the Crowd of course. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and can’t wait to welcome in the New Year with the same resolution that we always abide by (we don’t mind if you want to steal it as yours too)… Make Ideas Happen.

We couldn’t celebrate 2017 without a huge round of applause to the incredible partners that we work with. In the last year alone, we distributed over £1.9m! as match pledges from these partners to the projects that they care about.

We love ideas that have the potential to change the world, and through collaboration with our partners, we can can already see the innovative Crowdfunder community working on re-imagining how we take control of the kind of world that we want to live in. Hundreds of these great projects received match funding to help them tackle issues in their community, such as poverty, education and unemployment – just to name a few.

We have £4,355,100 of extra funding from our partners to giveaway for ideas that help communities, support wellbeing, work towards a better environment, reward innovation, supercharge business ideas and so much more. Click ahead to find out more about each fund and see if your great idea fits the bill.

Here’s just a handful of the partners that we are currently working with. Why not make your idea happen in 2018?

Hannah Sloggett, Neighbourhood Planning Manager at Plymouth City Council, says…

“We were looking for a way of distributing funds in a way that really engaged communities, supported ownership and enabled our role to be guided by community support… It is much more than engaging communities – it’s fundamentally involving communities in the priorities of what money should be spent on. Communities can provide solutions by starting projects, validating the idea through pledging from the Crowd and consequently make things happen in their local area. The visibility of the fund through this process is completely different to a normal grant making process as decisions are made publicly and quickly.”
