Launched in September 2021, Activate is the second strand of Project Reboot delivered as part of Sport NI’s COVID-19 Response through ‘Supporting Sport to Build Back Better funding’. Delivered in partnership with Crowdfunder UK, Project Re-Boot: Activate offers 50% of match funding up to £5,000 for sports clubs and organisations looking to deliver new programmes to engage and re-engage people in Sport.
In the last 3 months Sport NI has pledged £100,000 to support a number of campaigns; and while some are ongoing and working to gain the support of their crowd, 15 have already been successful in drawing support from over 1500 individual supporters and raising an incredible additional £170k for their project.
If your club or organisation would like to get involved in Project Re-Boot: Activate, there is still time! A final closing date for campaigns to be submitted for Sport NI review is Friday 18th March 2022; and all projects should be completed by 30th June 2022.
We acknowledge that Crowdfunding is likely a very new approach for many but there is lots of support available to get you started!
The webinar is a great way to get lots of tips and answer any questions about setting up the best campaign possible! Watch the latest webinar below
We strongly encourage you to get in touch when planning a campaign and before going live as many of the common pit falls can be easily avoided with a little guidance, contact email@example.com for questions related to your project and Chloe our Crowdfunder UK coach firstname.lastname@example.org for more technical questions about using the crowd funder platform.
