Extra funding

Get extra funding for your idea

Up to a further £100,000 for your project

One of the things that sets us apart from our competitors is our extra funding for projects.

It's easier to run a community shares project on Crowdfunder because we have a £1million-pot for things that people passionately care about.

We know from experience that matching funds from our partners inject real momentum into fundraises.

For every pound of extra funding across Crowdfunder, it's matched by a further £4 from the public. 

We have extra funds for creating a community shares project in the first instance, and for raising money when it's live.

Check them out below.

This is a game changer for groups with big plans, looking to do community share offers. We know from experience that matching can supercharge campaigns.
