Sport England: Active Together - Grant Conditions

Active Together - Sport England’s Extra Funding Scheme.

Claiming your Grant

You must draw down your grant through Crowdfunder within 3 months of the successful completion of your crowdfunding campaign, any funding not drawn down after 3 months will be deemed unspent and returned to Sport England.

Your grant should be used for the specific purposes as set out on your Crowdfunder campaign page, if you are unable to use the grant for the purposes set out on your Crowdfunder campaign, please notify us as to how you intend to spend the grant at
[email protected].

You should maintain proper accounts for the funds received and we may ask you to provide evidence of how you have spent these funds.


You will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire about your project and crowdfunding experience, one before your campaign completes and one 6-8 weeks afterwards. You may also be asked to take part in a short interview about your experience of the fund. You agree for your contact details to be passed on to us for this purpose and to supply any information requested in a timely manner.

Branding and Recognition

We may wish to use your campaign details and our grant to form part of a case study that we will publish on our website to show good-practice and provide support to other organisations wishing to crowdfund as an alternative source of funding. We will
discuss and agree the content with you.

Please follow Sport England’s branding guidelines if and when promoting your project. Full details, including access to our logo, brand toolkit and ordering of any signage can be found here:

We want to support as many organisations to run a successful, rewards-based community crowdfund as we can and have a broad range of supporting materials available for you (see our guide here). Ideally before you apply to us, your campaign page should be as complete as possible but not yet launched; whilst we can consider an application on a campaign that is already actively running, helping you to make it as successful and suggesting improvements can then be a little harder to do, so please do try and apply before you launch your campaign page.

Retaining evidence of spend

We will undertake sample checking of expenditure on some projects. If your project is selected, we will notify you and ask for evidence of how you have spent your funds. Therefore, it is essential that you retain original receipts, invoices and bank statements for all of your project expenditure.

Organisational Issues

Please inform us in writing of any major changes to your organisation, this may include impending mergers, financial difficulties, significant loss of funding, significant changes in staffing, and/or Charity Commission / Companies House matters.

If you change your address or contact details, please inform us via email ([email protected]), providing details of your new address and contact details.

We reserve the right to withdraw, reduce, vary or withhold the grant, in whole or in part in the event of: any failure to comply with the above and/or where the law is not being complied with.
