UK Crowdfunding Association
Join the UK Crowdfunding Association (UKCFA) as we advocate for the advancement of the crowdfunding and alternative finance industry, providing support, guidance, and representation for our members, while empowering businesses and entrepreneurs to access diverse funding opportunities.
Thank you for your interest in the UK Crowdfunding Association.
We represent crowdfunding platforms and alternative finance with operations in the UK. There are a couple of commitments we ask members to make in order to ensure that we can operate in the most effective manner and speak as one voice on the issues that matter to our industry.
Those commitments are:
- Agreement to adhere to the UKCFA Policy and Code of Conduct.
- Recognition that appropriate and proportionate regulation is essential for UK crowdfunding and alternative finance – whether platforms are regulated by the FCA or not. This will ensure the integrity and reputation of crowdfunding as it develops into a mature financial sector.
Crowdfunding platforms that become members of the UKCFA pay an annual fee, which helps to cover the costs of promotional and lobbying activities. Members benefit from cooperation with other platforms, statutory rights to call and attend members’ meetings and can appoint and dismiss directors. Further details are set out in our Articles of Association, which is available upon request.
Supporters can also become members of the UKCFA. Supporter membership is open to individuals, businesses and other organizations who are actively engaged in the sector and can contribute to UKCFA objectives. Supporters will be given the opportunity to collaborate on policy, participate in debates, and receive priority access to conferences and events.
Membership is priced according to the size of platform by total amount raised, while supporter membership is priced according to the size of the business.
