How to use Crowdfunder to raise money for your registered charity.

Updated over a week ago

If you are a registered charity, you have a couple of different options to raise funds on our site.

Click on this link to go to our Charities page

Charity Profile Page

You'll be able to set up your own dedicated Charity Profile page on the Crowdfunder platform, which means anyone can donate to or raise money for your cause at any time. What's more, while transaction processing fees apply to all fundraisers and charities, there'll be no platform fees to pay. This acts as your Charity landing page where anyone can search for you on our site and donate or start fundraising for you.

Please note if you wish to run a single project for a specific fundraising aim and target, you may want to choose a different set up.

To set up your Charity profile page click on Create your charity's profile. Search for your charity to see if you already have a listing and if you can't find one, enter your charity name and registration number.

Please note this can take between 5-10 working days to set up as we need extra verification documentation from you to validate you as a registered charity.

What you will need to set up your charity profile page

Your charity profile page is the landing page for your charity so this is where you can tell your story, add your logo and even create a video to encourage people to donate!

You will need to verify your charity's bank details and one of your trustees will need to verify their ID as a representative before you are able to collect donations. This is part of the financials and extra funding section which we have plenty of guidance on in our help centre.

You will also be able to collect regular donations from supporters who want to contribute to your charity on a monthly basis.

Please note that at the moment Crowdfunder won't collect Gift Aid on your behalf, but we will collect the Gift Aid declarations from your supporters for you to help speed up the process.

You will need to claim the Gift Aid from HMRC once your project is closed. Find out how here: Can I claim Gift Aid through my Crowdfunder Project?

Project or Prize Draw

Can I create projects or prize draws from my Charity page?

Yes. Once your profile page is live, you can start a crowdfunding rewards project which also allows you to apply for extra funding or set up a prize draw. You can do this from your profile page by navigating to the overview in your dashboard.

Our advice would be "don't rush through it", ensure your Crowdfunding or Prize draw page is looking as good as it can with a mixture of content. We have a great learn area to refer to and online events for you to book yourself on.
