What is crowdfunding?

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.


Hi! I’m Kia and I am 19. My dream has always been to become an actress and this year my dream became a step closer to reality when I gained a place at the Lir Academy for Acting in Ireland. However, as this course is a foundation year and not in the United Kingdom, it is completely unfunded. The course itself costs £9,250 and accomodation is no less than £9,000. And this doesn’t even consider the cost of living. I know this year will be the making of me and my career and it is simply rather sad that the arts doesn‘t get enough funding. I refuse to let this stop my chances. I will be hosting a fundraiser concert called ‘A Night on Broadway’ on August 10th at Arden Hall, Castle Bromwich, Birmingham to raise money for this cause. Stars include well known artists from the voice and pitch battle as well as a cruise entertainer. Tickets are £8 and the night includes a music quiz, nibbles, a raffle, silent auction and a bar. Please join me to help raise some money! If you can’t make it but would like to donate, please feel free to do so and I sincerely thank you in advance.
