Making a real impact: We unveil our top 100 Projects.

Today we are proud to release a list of our top 100 Crowdfunder projects from the last 12 months. From exciting prize draws to community investments and fundraisers with mind-blowing rewards, last year saw a magnificent display of innovative and successful Crowdfunder projects. We’re inviting everyone to help celebrate the exceptional projects that made the year absolutely unforgettable.

Our team is on hand to pick out specific projects that they thought stood out from the crowd.

Simon Deverell, Co-CEO

No. 18: Led By Donkeys

Led By Donkeys simplistic and ingenious campaigning over the last 7 years has continuously ‘hit the nail on the head’ as far as highlighting ‘accountability’ in politics. It’s calling out flip-flopping politicians in the most simplistic way – by reminding us, the public, what they previously said or tried to win votes on. LBD have mastered crowdfunding, building a huge following that want to see their (often futile) frustration amplified through their message. Top marks on all fronts..”

Dawn Bebe, Co-CEO

No. 2: Noah Donohoe Investigation

“I was blown away by the Noah Donohoe project – they raised over £179,000 to continue the fight to find out the tragic circumstances of young Noah’s death and create a film about it. It struck me that in a desperate and deeply challenging situation, the crowd had responded to the call of Noah’s mother and the investigations team and united to provide the cash to enable them to continue to seek out the truth. There are few other ways this work could have found the funds to continue and it brilliantly demonstrates how crowdfunding brings communities together to make things happen.”

Phil Geraghty, Co-Founder

No. 87: Ipswich Town Foundation

Ipswich Town Foundation is an amazing story of what is possible with the Crowdfunder platform. They are doing wonderful work in the local community, but like many charities have limited resources for fundraising. They have been running Crowdfunder Prize Draws every month, with amazing engagement from the local community and using those funds raised to continue their great work. A shining light to all charities on what is possible.”

Max Upton, Head of Projects

No. 12: Music Venues Trust

“I’m fortunate to work with many inspiring and game-changing projects every day. One standout is Music Venue Trust. From raising over £4 million during the pandemic to #SaveOurVenues, running a £150,000 prize draw to win Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys’ guitar, to more recently launching a £2.3 million community share offer to #OwnOurVenues. The team’s passion and commitment to supporting grassroots music venues is incredible. It’s a privilege to share a stage with such an awesome charity.”
