+Extra funding

We have match funding available to help support your business or project.

We have a pot of +Extra funding from a selection of national and regional partners which, depending on what your business or project is doing, may be available to help you raise more funds. 

It’s simple! You add your project on Crowdfunder and under your 'extra funding' section tell us who and what your project applies to. Our clever matchmaker will then ensure that your project is matched with any funds you may be eligible to apply to. Read through the criteria and if you think it's a fund for you, hit 'apply for funding' and tell us why your project deserves the extra funding in the application form. We’ll take it from there.

So, what are you waiting for?

Extra funding FAQs

Is my project eligible for extra funding? 

You could be eligible for more money on top of what you raise from the crowd, depending on what you're doing or where you're doing it. Each fund has varying and specific criteria, so explore the different funds available further up this page to see if your project fits the bill. 

Do I have to crowdfund to get extra funding? 

In one simple word – Yes. Accessing extra funding through Crowdfunder is slightly different (and often easier!) than the traditional grant giving process, and there is a huge range of benefits that crowdfunding provides to take your project to the next level, such as idea validation and awareness of your project.
