Welcome to the first part of the new NCVO website. While we finish building it, you will find the rest of our help and guidance on our existing site.

What is it

A way of raising money online, without having your own online giving process. Social media focused.

Good reasons to try crowdfunding

  • You have a project or initiative you want to fund but can’t get funding elsewhere
  • You’re trying to reach new supporters and donors and are keen on spending time on social media


Magic of the Streets is a grassroots campaign to keep the streets open for art and music. They run a campaign to raise money to support street artists. A promotions company helps them make low cost badges and t-shirts to encourage small-medium donations. Buskers provide private online performances in return for larger donations. They raise over £3,000 from over 100 backers.
