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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I am fundraising to ensure that a memorial to the slaves who lived, died and were buried in Liverpool is realised. Many of these individuals were not only interred without a marker but even without their names. For example, on 23 Sept 1778 "A Black boy belonging to Captain Penny" was buried at what is now St John's Gardens. Although we do not know many of their names these individuals deserve to be respectfully commemorated.
