Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Given the ongoing cuts to school budgets over the past few years resulting in funding for teachers being cut, we are raising money to fund the renovation of our local state school, Oakdale Junior‘s, swimming pool.
The outer covering of the swimming pool is not fit for purpose, having big gaping holes, which means the pool can only be used during the summer, cannot be fully maximised by the local community and faces a risk of being shut down due to the local council not having the funds to allocate for the refurbishment.
We have the approval from the council for the renovation and updating of the swimming pool with a new outer covering, including a mezzamine viewing gallery, new changing areas, a reception area.
The estimated costs is around £500k and we have pre approved match funding. So we need to raise £250,000. The initial funds will be used to pay for the architectural designs to achieve full plannimg permission.
With a renovated pool covering, the children at Oakdale Junior would be able to swim all year round and become an income generating resource.
We would be able to rent the swimming pool out to other local state schools, which would enhance access to a pool for these children who do not current have one as well as to swimming clubs, generating a perenial income for the school, which Oakdale Junior would be able to use to fund more teaching resources for the local children for a very long time!
