What We Do...

The Crowdfunding Academy enables charities and fundraisers to understand how to make the most out of crowdfunding. 



We provide cutting edge training to help you understand crowdfunding and what it can do for you and your cause. Our workshops, courses and action learning cover a range of subjects that will enable you to run a successful campaign to raise the resources you need to change the world.



We will help your crowdfunding succeed. We provide customised, practical support, feasibility studies and big data analysis for organisations who are looking to make the most of crowdfunding across their work.  




We run crowdfunding programmes to help you, your cause and your project to get going, and we can work with your nonprofit, trust, foundation or governmental organisation to embed crowdfunding into your fundraising journey.

...We Do Well

'It was the first time we’d ever undertaken a crowdfunding campaign and we raised just over £8k. The help, advice and pointers we received from Esther’s team were superb and we couldn’t have managed without them. Knowing you could pick the phone up, get expert advice around building "communities” when planning campaigns provided us with a great outcome' - Zubeda Lambada, Connect Justice
