The Santander Bank has teamed up with Crowdfunder to launch new £200,000 fund to support social enterprises and community projects across the UK.
For the first time, one of the UK’s largest banks is partnering with a crowdfunding platform in an innovative collaboration to support social enterprises and community projects across the UK. Community projects looking to support social change are now able to present their ideas on Crowdfunder.co.uk and unlock matched funding of up to £10k from Santander’s new Changemaker Fund.
The new fund is open to social enterprises, small charities and community groups helping disadvantaged people in the UK. Eligible projects seeking funds of up to £20,000 and focussed on skills, knowledge and innovation that get the crowd’s backing will receive 50% (£10,000) of their funding requirement from Santander.
