Grantmakers across the UK are increasingly affected by cuts in the public sector, seeing a rise in competition for their limited funding pots.
It’s a challenge, especially for new and innovative organisations which may find traditional grantmaking favours the ‘usual suspects’.
Crowdfunder connects all types of grantmakers with thousands of projects every year through our innovative platform.
It levels the playing field, distributing funds to the projects they want to help.
The Crowd play their part to make those ideas happen, working together to stretch funds and drive awareness to make a real impact in uncertain times within their communities.
Caroline Norbury, Chief Executive at Creative England
Our partnership with Crowdfunder helps creative entrepreneurs to get the financial support they need to thrive.
We work with a wide range of grantmakers including trusts, foundations, public bodies and housing associations to make a difference through funding. Our expertise and technology help us to demonstrate its impact and tell the amazing story.
Our partnership helps us to nurture new talent, and that’s really exciting for creative industries.
At any given point we have tens of thousands of great ideas gathering support from the Crowd, and we connect the right projects that match the criteria to the grantmaker.
By working together with the Crowd and other public and private sector funders, our grantmakers stretch further their money
Our fund holding and distribution technology helps grantmakers streamline their grant application and administration processes. We stretch their resources even further.
Grantmakers are able to make sure everyone can clearly see the impact of the extra funding. Ensuring that’s visible on the platform will encourage more projects to take part, therefore giving more ideas the funding they need to become a reality.
It was a real game changer for us. We raised funds and awareness, and the extra funding means we can expand.
Our fund holding and distribution dashboard helps grantmakers streamline their application and administration processes. It's automated and scalable to ease pressure on resources in challenging times.
Crowdfunder's industry-leading experts work closely with grantmakers to find the right kind of projects to support. They also work closely with the project owners to help them hit their target and make their ideas happen.
The story around extra funding helps drive more supporters to projects and increases the amount of engagement each idea has. And the more people we engage, the greater impact we’ll achieve.
