Setting a stretch target

The best projects on Crowdfunder always beat their target and overfund. Once you start to overfund you keep all the money raised.

How it works

Remember...

Remember...

If you hit 100% of your initial target before the end of your campaign, you can set a stretch target to raise more funds. Your new goal won’t affect the success of your project and you’ll still receive all the money that you raised (minus our small fee, of course).

Why?

Why?

Having a stretch target makes it really clear to potential new supporters that you’re still accepting pledges.

“How?”

How?

Simply fill in the Stretch target box (it’s in the 'About you' section of the edit project flow) with your new target amount. Ensure the figure in this box is larger than your original target, for example if your target is £10k and you want to raise an extra £5k, your stretch target needs to be £15k (not £5k).
