Since May 2020, Sport England have been running a successful crowdfunding initiative called Active Together, helping sports clubs and other organisations to set up and run their own crowdfunding campaigns to help sustain themselves through the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.
Initially with a £1 million budget from the National Lottery, Active Together was designed to help with the immediate financial impact of coronavirus and in the longer-term, the return to play.
To date, Sport England supported campaigns with a financial pledge towards their target fundraising amount, but in addition to this, we’ve been providing:
- free 1-2-1 coaching by experts
- advice and guidance on campaign improvements
- access to free online courses
- free 30-minute webinars, monthly.
