Crowdfunder has expanded with the acquisition of a platform used for raising funds for legal fees.
The deal for CrowdJustice is designed to strengthen Crowdfunder’s commitment to back individuals and communities in overcoming legal challenges through the power of crowdfunding.
Phil Geraghty, director of Crowdfunder, said: “Crowdfunder exists to tackle society’s challenges by making ideas happen, and CrowdJustice aligns perfectly with that purpose.
“We are excited about how we can work strategically with the CrowdJustice team to deliver an even bigger impact for projects who need to raise legal fees from the crowd to achieve their goals.”
Julia Salasky, who founded CrowdJustice in 2015, added: “CrowdJustice – powered by its hundreds of thousands of donors to cases and legal matters – has achieved an enormous amount as the world’s leading crowdfunding platform for legal action, and we’re thrilled for this next stage in its impactful journey.
“Crowdfunder is a platform that shares our values, and is one of the UK’s most effective fundraising platforms for community action. Partnering with Crowdfunder will enable CrowdJustice to become an even more powerful force in democratising access to the law.”
