Crowdfunding is not right for every heritage group or organisation but there are other benefits to crowdfunding beyond raising funds for your projects, including building a community of supporters.

You can view our top tips here for further information.  Before you start a crowdfunding campaign make sure you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:

  • Does your whole group/organisation understand what crowdfunding is and what it involves?
  • Can your Board get behind it?
  • Will everyone share their networks, contacts and time to reach the common goal?
  • Is there a team of people that can support the planning and management of a campaign?
