SF&G is working with Crowdfunder to support gardens, farms and community growing spaces to use crowdfunding as a way to fund their activities and grow big new ideas.
What is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a way to raise money from the people around you and others who share your passion. It works on the principle that if lots of people give a little, big things can be achieved! Crowdfunding platforms operate by providing an online space to host your fundraising campaign, and handling the payments side of people making donations to you.
SF&G have partnered with Crowdfunder, a platform that offers zero platform fees to charities and just 5% for other organisations.
They have set up an online hub to group all the campaigns from our members and related groups together - giving more visibility to both individual campaigns and the sector as a whole.
