Fund description:

Crowdfunder is the UK’s largest crowdfunding website and is used by businesses, charities, people in need, community groups and sports clubs to get funding from people who support their project ideas.

Projects which raise money through Crowdfunder could be eligible for more money on top of what they raise from “the crowd”, depending on what they’re doing or where they’re doing it. A number of organisations across the UK have joined forces with Crowdfunder to offer extra funding to projects which are successful with their crowdfunding campaign, these include:
