Maximise your crowdfunding efforts by allowing supporters to set up projects to raise funds on your behalf — their project pages will simply link to yours and all funds they raise will go directly towards your target.
I'M A PROJECT OWNER AND WANT TO SET UP A MULTIPLIER
First of all, check if your friends, family, colleagues, community or existing supporters want to set up a project in support of your crowdfunding campaign. If they say yes, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can change your project to a multiplier.
Once this has been activated, you’ll see the following button on your page. Fundraisers simply click on Start fundraising to begin setting up their campaign.
You can monitor all fundraiser activity in the fundraisers section of your dashboard.
You can also share your rewards with your fundraisers so their supporters can pledge on them too. Click on edit project in your dashboard, then select rewards to find the sharing option pictured below.
Please note that when you switch to a multiplier, your project will be set to flexible funding. If you originally set up your campaign on all or nothing, we recommend messaging your supporters or posting a project update to let everyone know that your funding model has changed.
Your project will also be set to always on when your campaign ends, which means you can continue to receive donations via your project page.
I'M A SUPPORTER AND WANT TO SET UP A FUNDRAISER
Once you’ve clicked on Start fundraising (as pictured above), you can set your own project target and title. Next, you can add videos or images and share the story of the campaign you're supporting. You'll also be able to add any of the rewards that are already live on the main project page page.

You won't need to add your bank details as all funds that you raise will go straight to the main project you're supporting.
