We are extremely excited to announce this year's BBE crowdfunding campaign, #BrassBandsAtChristmas!
The 2020 #SaveOurBrassBands crowdfunding campaign was a roaring success, raising over £140,000 for brass bands across the UK.
This Christmas, Brass Bands England will be leading another national campaign with the support of Crowdfunder. The campaign is here to help you raise funds for your band, as well as provide a chance for more people to enjoy brass bands this Christmas.
Throughout the campaign, bands will be supported with free coaching and fundraising advice from the experienced Crowdfunder team, as well as ongoing support and promotion from BBE HQ.
To find out more about why you should get involved, register for this free launch webinar led by the Brass Bands England and Crowdfunder teams. This webinar will also be streamed live via the BBE Facebook page.
To stay up to date with campaign updates as well as share your own progress, you can join the #BrassBandsAtChristmas Facebook Group.
What is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a different way to raise money for good ideas. People are increasingly bypassing more traditional funding routes such as bank loans or grants and turning instead to the people around them and in their community to support their venture.
Crowdfunder is the UK’s largest crowdfunding platform, specialising in community, social enterprise and start-ups. To date they have raised £200 million for crowdfunding projects. You can watch a short video about how Crowdfunder works on the Crowdfunder Youtube channel.
