Crowdfunding for the Third Sector

Crowdfunding has moved on a long way since the early days of JustGiving which tended to focus on small projects for good causes.

Now, crowdfunding is seen as a viable alternative to more mainstream finance streams, as investors are increasingly looking for better deals than are offered by traditional savings.  This opens up many new ways to secure funding – but beware, there are pitfalls!

Launched at the end of May, helps you make the most of the crowdfunding opportunities currently available.  The website will help you to:

  • Decide which type of crowdfunding is best for you – debt or equity, donation or reward
  • Choose which of the many different platforms around is most suitable for your project
  • Plan your critical pre-campaign period so you are able to make the most of the campaign itself
  • Manage the campaign itself so you are best able to secure success

We have recently run a series of workshops to help charities and social enterprises make the most of crowdfunding opportunities.  If you would like us to run one for your organisation, get in touch.   We also run social media training to make sure your campaign fully maximises the online opportunities.

We will soon be publishing a directory of crowdfunding platforms which are amongst the most suitable for the third sector.  Keep watching…
