The extra funding is available for ideas that are supporting social change through one of our three priorities:
We’re looking for ideas that help people develop their skills.
We welcome ideas that improve people’s knowledge.
Your idea could support a social innovation that creates positive change.
Develop your idea, tell your story on Crowdfunder and ask people to support you with pledges
When you hit 50% of your funding target, we’ll add the other half (projects up to max £20,000)
Once you’ve hit your target, you can begin to make your mark in the community
You need to be able to say yes to these three questions:
Are you a constituted organisation with a project to help disadvantaged people in the UK?
Are you a start-up, small charity or social enterprise with a target of up to £20,000?
Do you have a long-term aim with a demonstrable short-term impact (a report will be required)?
