Crowdfunding platforms for charities and social enterprise
Big Society Capital has partnered with three crowdfunding platforms to provide £10 million of match funding to enable the public to invest directly in charities and social enterprises. The crowdfunding platforms will provide information about organisations and causes that want to raise debt and equity finance, which potential investors will be able to access. Big Society Capital will match any investments made by individual investors. Private investors will qualify for a 30% tax break through the Social Investment Tax Relief scheme.
