Who is Chuffed?

Chuffed is one of the global leading crowdfunding platforms for social causes, ranging from environmental, animal welfare and international development causes to social welfare and projects supporting refugees across the world. We’re a purpose-led company that’s transforming how people think about charities around the world. We’re making the face of charity awesome, bringing to life exciting projects that people want to be part of.

In contrast to many other charity providers and fundraising platforms, we do not charge any commissions or fees to campaigners. This way 100% of funds raised can go to support projects. Instead, we rely wholly on the kindness of donors to cover online transaction fees and include an optional donation to support our platform. Lucky for us, turns out they do!

Since launching in October 2013, we’ve raised over $13M / £9M for close to 5,000 projects in 20 countries, and this is only the start.

Everyone on team Chuffed.org deeply cares about the causes we support. We’re a genuine bunch and look forward to having you on board!

5 Team Crowdfunding Campaigns That Blasted Through Their Targets

Crowdfunding is a team sport. Our new Team Crowdfunding feature takes it that extra step further.

A whole new way to crowdfund!

Each of your champions (the core bunch of people most passionate about your project) can take their passion for your cause that extra mile by creating their own crowdfunding page that’s connected with your main campaign page. The team pages inherit any perks from the main campaign and can be customised by each champion.

Check out some of our top picks for campaigns that have taken their crowdfunding to the next level by joining forces with their champions and setting individual targets.

1. Great Ocean Walk with PROJECT FUTURES



2. Small Change Big Impact



3. Climate for Change



4. Toss the Boss 2.0



5. Macquarie Mad Dash



We’re always on the lookout for new ways we can support campaigns in raising more funds, and this feature will do just this.

This is how: Team Crowdfunding lets you set up a normal crowdfunding campaign with several sub-campaigns for each of your team members below it. Everyone on the team gets their own page, which all sum up to the total on the main page.

We think Team Crowdfunding’s perfect for not-for-profits and social enterprises who:

  • Are worried that they don’t have a big enough audience to launch a crowdfunding campaign
  • Want to leverage their supporters’ audiences to get noticed
  • Are keen to be innovative with their fundraising
