Crowdfunder are offering 100% free fundraising for small businesses during the coronavirus crisis. It’s called Pay It Forward, and the idea is that customers and supporters across the UK pay for goods and services in advance to help businesses ease cash flow problems at this time.
How it works
You set up a page on Crowdfunder for your business, and you let customers and supporters know what you can pre-sell and deliver after the crisis – rewards for their support. There’s no charge to you to do it, and it’s supported by a number of organisations including the Cabinet Office.

There are similar opportunities for creative industries, social enterprises, and sports clubs. Again it’s free to set up – Crowdfunder are waiving their platform and transaction fees for projects tackling the effects of the coronavirus emergency.
There’s lots of businesses and organisations set up and crowdfunding, many have already achieved their target with some really creative ideas, from online classes and gift vouchers, to ‘beer & a bog roll’ and gift experiences for when this is all over.
