£13,500 of extra funding available

There’s extra funding available now on Crowdfunder to build stronger communities in the North London and Hertfordshire region.

Working together, Origin and Crowdfunder are harnessing the power of crowdfunding to gather support for great new ideas that have the potential to make a massive difference.

By working together, we can make a difference.

We want to people to turn to Crowdfunder to get started and gather support for their idea.

We’ll provide extra funding to those that show they have the support of their community through crowdfunding, and have the potential to make a real impact.

Down the years we’ve seen fetes, garden projects, sports teams, youth mentors and events for young and old receive extra funding.

Projects don’t have to be based within our area, but they must benefit Origin customers. So, got a great idea? Make it happen.

This is a fantastic way to raise money for community projects, as well as pick up fundraising skills and techniques that can help projects go even further in the future.
