Claiming your Award

Once your campaign successfully closes, Crowdfunder will notify us.

Please see here for full details on how the payment of our funding works.

Your award should be used for the specific purposes as set out in your Award Agreement from us and on your Crowdfunder campaign page. If you are unable to use the award for the purposes as agreed, please notify us as to how you intend to spend the award at [email protected]

You should maintain proper accounts for the funds received and we will ask you to provide evidence of how you have spent these funds as set out in the ‘Evaluation’ section below.


You will be required to report on the progress of your project. Please refer to our Movement Fund reporting requirements here, which we reference in your Award Agreement. This page explains why and when we will request this report, as well as what information you will need to provide.

You may also be asked to complete a short questionnaire about your project and crowdfunding experience, or asked to take part in a short interview about your experience which will help us to improve the Movement Fund for others. You agree for your contact details to be passed on by us for this purpose and to supply any information requested in a timely manner.
