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.
