We often receive emails asking, “Who Can Crowdfund”, “Can I be on PledgeSports?”, “What age do I have to be?”, “Can I set up a campaign for someone else?”, and “What country must I be from?”
Crowdfunding Is For Everyone
We have now had campaigns successfully fundraise in 40 countries and four continents around the world. Our success stories travel far and we are getting inquiries from different countries and sports on a weekly basis.
The sports include anything from main stream ones like football, rugby etc to tennis, running, hockey and horse-riding to the likes of ultra-running, Deaflympics, finswimming and tchoukball (learn more about that and many other crazy niche sports here!)
We have also helped to fund events, books and films one of which shows the 2016 Paralympics in Rio from an athlete’s perspective – check out their fantastic fundraiser!
We have worked with people from aged anywhere between seven and the mid-fifties. We’re too polite to disclose more accurate ages, but the fact is that you’re never too young or too old to get started on achieving your ambitions and we are on hand to help you do exactly that.
We have even helped crowdfund a snow factory for a ski resort!
Here is a list of what kind of stuff we cover:
- Any athlete or team
- Sports clubs
- University teams
- Films & books
- Sports companies
Crowdfunding Caters For All Levels
When it comes to competitive standard the answer is simple – you can be of any level.
We have people who have recently taken up a particular sport and love it, so they want to progress to competition level.
We have talented kids whose parents need to fundraise to progress their future. We have people competing at a national level who want to progress to competing internationally. We have local sport clubs in teams from children’s teams to national, international and even Olympic teams.
We have even helped institutions and government sporting bodies raise money.
We Have 1 Question. . .
How are YOU going to get there?
Well, PledgeSports is a good start. You get to raise money, build your profile, and build your fan base.
