We’ve been Crowdfunder’s Third Sector consultancy partner since 2019, supporting charities with fresh ideas towards crowdfunding for amazing projects
Crowdfunder.co.uk is the UK’s #1 rewards-based crowdfunding platform, where £250 million+ has been raised by thousands of charities, businesses, social enterprises, community groups, and individuals across the UK.
We joined forces with Crowdfunder as their trusted charity outreach partner to develop relationships with the charity sector to create digital fundraisers. Using the power of Crowdfunder’s new charity propositions, we help charities to foster innovation, leverage their partnerships, fundraise digitally and obtain a new crowd of supporters.
Some of the projects we’ve helped launched include:
Innovations in fundraising
The National Emergencies Trust collaborates with other charitable bodies and philanthropic organisations to raise and distribute money to support victims in times of domestic disaster.
Through building a strong relationship with National Emergencies Trust and explaining the benefits of using Crowdfunder.co.uk as a digital fundraising platform, we were able to support them with getting set-up and making the most of the platform.
During their 2020 Covid Appeal they were able to utilise innovative functions on the Crowdfunder platform to leverage their corporate partnerships, benefit from the match funding function available on the platform, in addition to utilising a central totaliser that showed the public how well the appeal was going and led to significantly more donations.
The overall campaign raised an incredible combined total of over £99 million, which translated into support for 14,500 organisations and groups to adapt their services and respond accordingly to the changing needs of UK communities. £68 million of this was raised on the Crowdfunder platform - Learn more

Groundbreaking prize draws
On 15th Feb 2023 Oxfam launched a phenomenal prize draw on the Crowdfunder.co.uk platform - you may have seen it in the press! 24 incredible hours later and a super engaged crowd had raised over £433k for the for the Turkey/Syria earthquake!
The prize draw offered entrants a chance to win one of 10 pairs of Glastonbury tickets, with a once in a lifetime experience (including viewing a set from the side of the Pyramind stage). When this phenomenal 3 week Crowdfunder campaign closed it had raised a whooping £1,004,190 from 46,392 supporters! Oxfam, Glastonbury and all the supporters were all delighted. Even the Glastonbury talent got behind it, most notably Sir Elton John.
The Ethical Good team were responsible for introducing Oxfam to the Crowdfunder platform and highlighting how to make best use of its various features. We also coached them through the roll out of the campaign.
