Return to Play: Active Together - External

Since May 2020, we’ve been running a successful crowdfunding initiative called Active Together, helping sports clubs and other organisations to set up and run their own crowdfunding campaigns to help sustain themselves through the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

What will you support?

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

This may be the 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 hire or the 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, or the need to undertake essential maintenance of your facilities that are now not possible due to the crisis.

How long will it take?

Campaigns typically run for 28 days but take a few weeks to create – so about six weeks in total. Applications to Active Together are done through the Crowdfunder site and will take minutes to complete and submit.

Once received, our decision on whether we support your campaign or not will be made within a couple of days, leaving you to focus on running your campaign.

Whilst we can’t fund every campaign we see, those that make a good case, include a video and have engaging rewards that’ll incentivise a crowd wider than just an existing membership, will usually succeed.

We’ll support you throughout, to help you deliver the best possible campaign you can. Crowdfunding can be a great way to achieve a fundraise in a relatively short period of time, so why not give it a try?
