Let's stick together

Helping vulnerable communities during the coronavirus crisis

Crowdfunder is making it 100% free for social enterprises that turn to Crowdfunder during the crisis

We've always worked with communities across the UK during difficult times and the rapidly developing challenges presented by the spread of the coronavirus is no different. 

The Covid-19 epidemic could affect millions of people but together, we're stronger.

Volunteer groups are springing up to tackle the logistical problems faced in our communities – but they need urgent support.

Charities are dealing with the double whammy of reduced donations combined with an increased strain on their resources.

Businesses are 'paying it forward', generating advanced sales of goods and services to ease their immediate cash flow issues.

So we're here to play our part in the response with 100% fee-free fundraising to everyone on the ground.

Let's look after each other. Let's make a difference together.

How a social enterprise is working in their local area

In response to the coronavirus emergency, a social enterprise called Made In Hackney has paused its community cookery classes to launch a temporary direct-to-door, free meal delivery service for our communities most vulnerable members.

To date they have raised almost £50,000, thanks to over 1,200 supporters, to help vulnerable people during the crisis in east London.

A community response to coronavirus with crowdfunding

We're working with communities to look after the most vulnerable in our society.

There will be a surge in demand for many services in the coming weeks.

Essential food items such as pasta and loo rolls are flying off our supermarket shelves. It's having a negative impact on the most vulnerable members of our society..

But the unprecedented situation is bringing out the very best in our communities and we're working together to help those that need it most.

That's what Crowdfunder is all about and we're here to play our part in the response.

Start crowdfunding to support your volunteer or community project and together, we can get through this.
