  • Crowdfunding

    We were very proud to launch a philanthropic crowdfunding site for the arts and cultural sectors, AngelShares, which was unique in offering Gift Aid functionality, following extensive – and very positive! – negotiations with HMRC.

    Sadly, having raised over £10k for arts organisations and won them many new on-going supporters, the enterprise fell victim to internet trolls, and became unviable. However, we learned a lot about what works and doesn’t in crowdfunding, and are keen to help others make this a successful tool in their fundraising arsenal.
