How Charities can use Crowdfunder to run a project.

Updated over a week ago

Our Charity Profile pages are a great way to get your charity visible on Crowdfunder and allow easy donating and fundraisers!

Profiles act as a landing page for your charity and have no deadlines or targets, they are designed to stay open as long as the Charity chooses and they can accept card payments.

See our guide for all the features that are available on the Charity Profile pages.

Important note: If you have a Charity Profile page and want to apply for Extra Funding towards your cause, start a new project from your dashboard as most Extra Funding can NOT be added directly to your profile page.

A project is a little different and is useful if you want to raise funds for a specific reason and have a target goal in mind.

Once you have a Charity Profile page, you can run a project from it that will feed into the charity bank account that you registered to your profile. Just click 'My charity'.

Then click 'New project' and start a project or a prize draw if relevant.

If you do not yet have a Charity Profile page set up, you may want to just run a single project for a specific cause to raise funds for your charity.

If you are short of time and want to get fundraising immediately this may also be the best option for you as Charity Profiles require extra due diligence checks to be done which can take up to a couple of weeks to verify. You can still use the charity's bank account to collect the funds and select to add GiftAid and collect the Gift Aid declarations. You can always set up your Charity Profile afterwards.

To start a single project, click here and and select 'Not-for-profit':

If you do want to run a single project as a registered charity, please get in touch via our contact form once you have started to set the project up, and we will ensure you are on the charity fee structure:
