Extra funding FAQs

Is my project eligible for extra funding? 

It might be… each fund has specific criteria (e.g. geographical location, school subject or target beneficiaries), please check them out above.

Do I have to crowdfund to get the extra funding? 

Yes. In order to access any of the funds above, you will have to raise a proportion of your target yourself. Check each fund’s criteria for the specific amount required. But don’t worry, you might enjoy it! Crowdfunding is still way easier than traditional grant applications and bake sales, and has loads of extra benefits (like community building and skills development for the students involved).
