Even if you aren't raising money alongside collecting votes for the Aviva Community Fund, you can start crowdfunding anytime to bring your project to life.
In fact, by collecting votes, you're already building your crowd. And that's key to a successful crowdfund.
If you think your project could be suitable for crowdfunding, or just want to find out more about it, get started by adding your idea to Crowdfunder and we'll be there to help every step of the way.
We really wanted the reassurance that people cared enough about the project.
