Crowdfunder is a place to connect great ideas with people that can make them happen.
It has extraordinary potential – connecting individuals, communities, charities and brands to improve lives, one project at a time.
Crowdfunder is the UK’s number one rewards-based crowdfunding platform with more projects than all other platforms combined, raising over £20million and unlocking millions more to make great ideas happen.
At the heart of it all is compelling mix of wonderful innovation, engaged communities and remarkable stories which opens up new possibilities for funders.
Local authorities, grantmakers and brands need to be part of that conversation. To help great ideas happen on Crowdfunder, and forge new relationships with the people behind them.
We bring together everyone into one place and help them reach their goals.
Dawn Bebe, Director at Crowdfunder
The Crowdfunder community are making ideas happen every hour of every day all over the UK and we believe local authorities, grantmakers and brands have a crucial role to play in this digital funding evolution.
Our funders immerse themselves within our platform to work alongside the ‘Crowd’ to make a real impact in communities across the UK. The breadth and depth of our expertise and the technology we have developed helps them achieve their goals.
Using Crowdfunder to distribute funding has really streamlined the administration that is normally involved
At any given time we’re likely to be involved in tens of thousands of crowdfunding projects. It’s highly likely that some of them will match your funding criteria and we will connect you with them. We can also use our extended network of partners to find even more.
Any project that you support will have already been supported by ‘the Crowd’. Your backing may also unlock other public and private funding to increase the amount of money to make great ideas happen.
Funders are able to streamline their grant application and administration processes through Crowdfunder. The technology we have developed means that much of it is automated and scalable, and partners tell us this is one of the many benefits of working with the platform.
The tools, expertise and technology we give to project owners helps them to recruit supporters. Our platform makes it easy for people to find out about their story, pledge their support and spread the word.
Crowdfunder is a natural social network with each project building a highly engaged community around it. The Crowd don’t only fund great ideas, but they actively promote them too. The platform also ensures visibility and accountability of fund distribution.
We are so proud of every pitch that came through Crowdfunder during VOOM 2016, this is just the start.
