What is live crowdfunding?
Live crowdfunding is raising money together, on the night, for causes the audience believes in. At our live crowdfunding events, you will meet and hear from changemakers with solutions to social issues. Each of them have six minutes to tell you about the change they are making and how you can support them, then you have six minutes to ask them questions. Once that's done, our expert pledge master will take you through the live crowdfunding session. You can give money, time or expertise, everything is appreciated!
Why live crowdfunding?
We believe that giving should be fun, well informed and engaging. Live crowdfunding gives people the unique opportunity to pool their time and resources to support small, non-profit organisations driving change, and to meet the inspiring individuals behind those organisations. Live crowdfunding is about gathering people who are different from each other so that our increasingly siloed lives do not diminish our collective capacity for empathy.
It is our aim to drive social change so that we have healthier, fairer and more sustainable communities.
