Thousands of people are turning to Crowdfunder to tackle local problems with great new ideas.
By raising the money they need they’re proving just how great the ideas are.
We’re working with local authorities to provide an efficient, secure and visible way of distributing extra funding to projects across the UK.
Our technology reduces the strain on shrinking budgets and precious resources, and increases public engagement.
We make your money go further in uncertain times and tell the amazing story along the way.
Hannah Sloggett, Neighbourhood Planning Manager at Plymouth City Council
Using Crowdfunder to distribute funding has really streamlined the administration that is normally involved in running a grant process.
We work with local authorities in all four corners of the UK to make a real difference to communities. We help them stretch their funds further at a time when budgets are being challenged.
Local authorities will reach the projects they want to support that meet their criteria, ensuring they get all the help they need.
The presence of local authorities in the ‘funding mix’ will attract more investment from the public and private sector, therefore distributing even more to projects backed by the Crowd.
Local authorities save more time and money by using our secure platform to complement the traditional grantmaking process.
Local authorities are able to make sure the community can clearly see the impact of the extra funding. Ensuring this process is visible on the platform will encourage more projects to get involved to make a difference.
Our data tells the story of a campaign’s impact, both social and economic, including the key role that a local authority played in delivering it.

Our award-winning creative and marketing teams help produce the online tools to engage and inspire people in the community to get involved. They include the Crowdfunder campaign page, access to a range of how-to guides and social media assets.
Local authorities streamline their applications through the fund holding and distribution dashboard we’ve developed. That means much of the process is automated and scalable to make sure the right projects get the help they need.
Crowdfunder's industry-leading experts have helped thousands of projects to hit their funding target. They’re also on hand to work closely with local authorities to get the most out of the partnership.
Our creative and marketing teams – together with our expanding network of projects, partners and industry experts – will recruit supporters.
The council encouraged us all to take ownership of the situation and work to find a positive way forward.
