Change your world with Crowdfunder

Crowdfunder, Lambeth Council, and groups and organisations across the borough are already working together to help turn local people’s ideas into reality. And we want to do more. It’s all part of making Lambeth a unique place to live, work, learn and do business.

Learn about crowdfunding

We’re running a workshop on Tuesday 27 February with Lambeth Council. This will be an introductory session for anyone who wants to find out more about this method of fundraising and the potential uses for local projects. We will also talk about the match funding available for projects in Lambeth via Crowdfunder and how you can access it.

What is Crowdfunder?

Crowdfunder is a community of over 600,000 people funding the change they want to see. Together we have funded business ideas, charities, community groups, sports clubs, political movements and much more. We believe that people should be empowered to turn their ideas into reality, and by unlocking funding from the crowd we can unlock a beautiful future.

Lambeth Crowdfunding

Word from the Cabinet

Cllr Matthew Bennett, Lambeth Council Cabinet Member for Planning, Regeneration and Jobs, said: “Our partnership with Crowdfunder is a guarantee that we are using our resources to support new ideas that come directly from community need. Projects that people invest their own money, time, and energy in have a solid foundation for sustainability.

Working with the local Plans

Lambeth is launching a Crowdfunder platform which will support new community projects and initiatives. Funding will come from a ‘developer tax’ called the Commnunity Infrastructure Levy which the Council levies on new developments in the borough. The projects will need to support priorities set out by local people in the Cooperative Local Investment Plans (CLIPs)
