How it works

1. Need money?

If you need to raise money for something, you're in the right place. Crowdfunding works for ideas big and small.

2. Get started

You'll need to tell the story of what you want to do, why you’re doing it and how you’re going to make it happen. We'll help with that.

3. Hit your target

When you're live your supporters will pledge small amounts of money in return for great rewards or just donations and help you hit your target.

Raising money for ideas

Thousands of people have used Crowdfunder to raise the funds they need to make things happen.

Ideas come in all shapes and sizes, raising anything from £200 to over £2.5million.

You could be a community group, a start-up, a great cause, a charity or an organisation in need of some funding.

You might be working on your own. It might be something we’ve never seen before. 

You can raise money through donations or by offering rewards, or with community shares.

That's the beauty of crowdfunding.
