The UK Crowdfunding Assocation represents the diverse and vibrant crowdfunding industry and gives our members a collective voice across government, media, regulators, and most importantly, to the general public.
Our members provide the platforms necessary to bring investors and fundraisers together across many industries, providing choice in this ever expanding marketplace.
Whether donating or investing, crowdfunding puts people in control of their money and how it is used to affect the world around them, whether for financial return or out of a desire to make a difference for the wider good.
Below is a brief overview of each of the different types of crowdfunding option available:
- Donation / Reward Crowdfunding
- Debt Crowdfunding
- Equity Crowdfunding
