Community Share Offer

Do you need funding to get a social enterprise or project off the ground ? Are you looking to help grow and expand your CIC or Charity? 

The Fundsurfer Community Share offer allows you to bring your supporters and the 'crowd' to your project to help you raise the funding you need. 

What are Community Shares?

The term 'community shares' refers to withdrawable share capital; a form of share capital unique to co-operative and community benefit society legislation. This type of share capital can only be issued by co-operative societies, community benefit societies and charitable community benefit societies.

Using community share opens up a lot of new possibilities - reviving local shops and pubs, funding renewable energy schemes, transforming community facilities, supporting local food growing, funding new football clubs, restoring heritage buildings, and above all, building stronger, more vibrant, and independent communities.
