Weʼve raised £357 to Support talented and diverse Year Here Fellows to tackle social issues across London
- Funded on Tuesday, 14th November 2017
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.
To do some good sometimes you need to get your hands dirty. But fear not for your own cleanliness good people, for you I will gladly suffer this mucky hardship if only for your amazing support and a donation to an awesome cause.
On 24th September we’ll be partaking in Tough Mudder by running 12 miles with 20 obstacles!

We are Transform3D, the philanthropic arm of digital marketing agency Forward3D. We exist to harness the innovation and talent of our employees to support early stage non-profits to flourish.
We are raising funds for Year Here, a pioneering social business. Launched in 2013, Year Here is a postgraduate course in social innovation based in London, designed to cultivate entrepreneurial approaches to entrenched social problems.
Year Here Fellows start by spending 5 months volunteering in care homes, homeless hostels and youth services across London where they work directly with service users and lead ‘innovation projects’ that aim to leave a legacy and pave the way for future innovations. Fellows then go on to run a community engagement project for a local council or housing association client before developing their own social venture idea from scratch.
We will be raising funds for Year Here's incubator phase, where Fellows are supported by entrepreneurs and experts to rapidly develop and test their ideas for social change. Many of these seeds grow into successful social businesses and charities beyond the programme. This fits perfectly into Forward3D's fail fast, agile work practice. We feel driven to contribute to the growth of a steady stream of new ventures in London that we can support with our digital marketing expertise in the future.
In the last couple of years, the Year Here incubator has launched a raft of social ventures in fields as diverse as ethical fashion, social design, homelessness and educational inequality. They've been recognised as Shackleton Leaders, Ashoka Changemakers, New Radicals and Housing Excellence Award Winners.
