Extra £5m for Active Together Crowdfunding Partnership
Grassroots sports clubs have received a boost with the news Sport England is investing a further £5 million of National Lottery funding into its partnership with Crowdfunder.
The Return to Play: Active Together fund evolved from a 2018 collaboration with Crowdfunder and sees Sport England match-fund up to £10,000 for not-for-profit organisations that raise funds via the crowdfunding website.
Since May 2020, the fund has supported 475 clubs and raised a total of £7,103,289 – with, on average, each club raising £10,508 from their crowd alone. All sports clubs, charities and other community organisations who deliver sport or activity in England are able to apply for up to £10,000 in match funding to help their communities get active.
