Crowdfunding Challenge launched


Enter for a chance to win training and support to help crowdfund one of your projects.

NCVO has teamed up with the crowdfunding platform, Buzzbnk, to offer 10 organisations a fantastic experience to crowdfund one of their projects. With training webinars, regular support from experts and a cash prize, this is a great opportunity to try out something new while receiving free, high-quality support.

They're looking for organisations that are enthusiastic, committed and likely to learn a lot from this challenge – they ask that you come to our Sustainable Funding Conference on 28th November to share your experiences (we’ll cover your travel costs and expenses).

  • So, think about your organisation, do you have something specific you could fundraise for? Tangible items such as equipment work well, but so do projects. Anything up to about £30,000 can work for crowdfunding; take a look at some examples on Buzzbnk.
  • And do you have some ideas about how you could engage your supporters or community to donate?
  • Finally, do you have some time to commit to this initiative? You will be set you five mini challenges during the competition – very small things aimed at increasing your learning and keeping your momentum going, but you ought to have at least a few hours a week you can use for this during late September and October.

This project will be what you make it – use our support and rise to the challenge and you could get one of your projects funded in just a few weeks. Plus, we can match-fund up to £1000 for the project we feel has made the most progress during the challenge.
