External Funding Opportunity- Return to Play: Active Together

Why considers crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a great way to raise essential funds during a critical time. The common misconception is that during this crisis, donations and charitable giving has suffered, but this is not what we have seen with Active Together.

Grant application vs. crowdfunding

Crowdfunding’s not the same as traditional grant funding. It does require work to set up and successfully run a campaign, but the sense of achievement you get once a campaign is successfully delivered creates ‘added value’ beyond what’s achieved from a competitive grant application.

There are also many additional benefits of running a campaign, as well as what you achieve financially.

Feedback so far from other campaigns has seen these benefits include an increased number of new members, sponsorships from local businesses, a great sense of place within the community, as well as new skills and experiences like social media, marketing and communications.


What will you support?

This funding option is about supporting local clubs and organisations through the coronavirus crisis and with the return to play.

  • Implementation of changes needed to ensure you’re adhering to the latest government guidelines around social distancing
  • It may be the need for additional coaching
  • Facility hires
  • Purchasing of personal protective equipment to make sure everyone who takes part in activity at your venue is safe.
  • It could be that a loss of income has severely impacted your ability to survive
  • The need to undertake essential maintenance of your facilities that are now not possible due to the crisis.
