British Airways Better World Community Fund
British Airways is on a journey to create a better, more sustainable future. They've recently launched the BA Better World Community Fund which aims to create life-changing opportunities and generate more positive impact in the communities they serve.
It offers up to £50,000 in extra funding to eligible projects that fundraise via Crowdfunder. You simply submit an application, raise your funds and get to work making a difference.
Aviva Community Fund
The Aviva Community Fund is a long-standing funding pot which supports small charities and community causes that are taking action in the face of climate change. It also helps people to take control of their financial wellbeing. The fund aims to support projects that boost resilience of communities and offers up to £50,000 of additional funding per eligible project.
National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund
When the pandemic hit, National Emergencies Trust launched a £1.2million Local Action Fund with Crowdfunder to support community and voluntary organisations affected by the pandemic. The good news is that there is still funding available. Through this fund, National Emergencies Trust match donations pound for pound, up to a total of £20,000 per eligible organisation.
The fund focuses on projects taking positive action for people in their communities affected by the pandemic, from supporting mental health, to assisting with financial hardship or helping communities disproportionately impacted by Covid-19. Eligible charities and groups will be able to use the funding in any way that enables their efforts, from covering core costs to launching new local services.
Here’s a great example: Rotary Kew Gardens are supporting the vital work of Richmond food banks and are receiving NET match funding up to the value of £250 per donation to help overcome the effects of the pandemic.
Multiple funding pots
It’s even possible to qualify for multiple funding pots. The Drug of Art is one such project that has obtained additional funding from both NET and BA Better World funding!
Bring your own
On Crowdfunder you can even bring your own funds from a corporate or individual donor. Not only can you highlight how much more you will be able to achieve with the extra funding, you can also raise awareness and publicity for your donor. Here are some example projects who have brought their own match funding to Crowdfunder:
Turn2us – This project is promoting their corporate match funder, Royal London, who are doubling all donations to help the millions of UK households who are facing rising living cost.
Habitat for Humanity - This appeal to support those fleeing the conflict in Ukraine is being very generously matched by Rolls-Royce, up to £1m! The charity is working on the ground providing refugees with temporary accommodation and coordinating medium to long term housing.
