How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding is a way of raising money online while also building support and momentum for your project or company.
By reaching a large number of people individually who put in small amounts of money you can raise the funds you need.
It has changed the way that we fund our communities, projects and companies.
We understand crowdfunding
And we make it simple and flexible:
- Build a crowd
- Set a fixed or flexible funding target
- Set a deadline if you need one, or go open-ended
- Offer rewards to your backers
- Get one-off donations or recurring monthly donations
- Fast payouts direct into your bank
- Extend your timeline or reduce your target if you need to
We'll provide you with the support you need be successful.
And you can accept pledges from credit cards in over 130 currencies.
Hundreds of successful crowdfunding projects
Hear from some of our happy fundraisers
"From the reporting and the functionality we always feel in control. We can update our campaign whenever we like - if we hit milestones or achieve goals our supporters want to know so we can tell them."
Justin Devereux, Sleep Pod
"Huge thanks to Fundsurfer for all of your support and guidance, an amazing platform with real people helping!"
Robin Adlem, Aid Box Community
"I ran a crowdfunding campaign for my first feature length film and we raised a good portion of our budget on the platform. We also generated interest in the film that we're benefiting from now that it has been released. Overall we had a great experience using Fundsurfer!"
Liam Hughes, 7x7
"It was having that extra bit of support that really boosted my campaign and also my platform as a writer, it was less about the money and more about my personal story and journey as a writer. I’ve since crowdfunded again with Fundsurfer for a literary festival!"
Amy Morse, Solomon's Secrets
"Fundsurfer were a great partner in getting us set up, first of all they were able to tell us what funding options would suit our business and when we chose crowdfunding they showed us how to run a successful campaign."
Robin Halpenny, Bearritos
"I would absolutely recommend Fundsurfer to anyone because I had a really great journey with those guys."
Ewa Rukat, Bristol's First Cat Cafe
