How to apply for Extra Funding

How to apply for Extra funding

What sets us apart from other crowdfunding platforms is our extra funding. 

We work with our partners at local authorities and big businesses across the UK to invest in successful projects, depending on what they’re doing and where they’re doing it. There’s over £5 million of extra funding on Crowdfunder and our website matches it to relevant ideas that receive the support of, and make an impact in, their community.

It’s straightforward to apply

1. Start crowdfunding


To be eligible, you must have a Crowdfunder project. Hit the ‘Start crowdfunding’ button to get the ball rolling. Like most things in life, the more you put into your project the more you’ll get out of it. Our online guides and expert coaches are on hand to help you every step of the way.

2. Fill out the basics 


It can take up to a few weeks to put together the perfect Crowdfunder project, depending on what you’re doing, but you don’t have to do it in one hit so you can take your time to make it perfect. 

However we can quickly start matching your idea to extra funding once we have the basic details about your project. Tell us what you’re doing, where you’re doing it and why you’re doing it. Our system will do the rest.

3. We'll show you relevant funds


If your project matches the criteria for extra funding from one or more of our partners, it’s likely we’ll need a few more details from you. We’ll send you to the relevant page to answer a few more questions about your project, which will help determine how much you could receive. Crowdfunder projects can receive up to £20,000 of extra funding.

To see what funds we may have to suit your idea, click the 'Find out more' link in the extra funding section of your project dashboard. You'll be able to apply for relevant funds once you've filled out the basics about your project. 

4. Apply and launch your project   


Once you've completed the form and submitted your application, it's time to start crowdfunding. You’ll need the support of the community around you to secure extra funding for what you’re doing, and there’s no better way to achieve that than through crowdfunding. You'll need to hit a certain percentage of your target before extra funds will be unlocked. And we’ll help you all the way.
