Helping vulnerable communities during the coronavirus crisis

Crowdfunder is making it 100% free for social enterprises that turn to Crowdfunder during the crisis

We've always worked with communities across the UK during difficult times and the rapidly developing challenges presented by the spread of the coronavirus is no different. 

The Covid-19 epidemic could affect millions of people but together, we're stronger.

Volunteer groups are springing up to tackle the logistical problems faced in our communities – but they need urgent support.

Charities are dealing with the double whammy of reduced donations combined with an increased strain on their resources.

Businesses are 'paying it forward', generating advanced sales of goods and services to ease their immediate cash flow issues.

So we're here to play our part in the response with 100% fee-free fundraising to everyone on the ground.

Let's look after each other. Let's make a difference together.
