ImageFor projects that matter, Crowdfunder brings you extra.
 

What sets us apart from other crowdfunding websites is our extra funding. If your project is community based or a social enterprise, it could be available to you. 

We look after more than £4m of extra funding from our partners; a mix of public and private sector organisations, charities and funding bodies.

We put this extra funding directly into your projects.

In short, it means that you could get an extra £20,000 for your project - on top of the money raised from the crowd.

How it works

It’s simple! You add your project on Crowdfunder and our clever matchmaker will ensure that your project is shown to our panel of extra funders. We’ll take it from there. 

So, what are you waiting for?
