UK Government Matches Crowdfunded Projects

The British government is supporting crowdfunding by matching amounts raised where the project is meant to preserve historic sites, places, buildings, cultures and traditions.

So-called “heritage” projects that raise between £4,000 and £40,000 have their funds matched by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The HLF rescues “historic buildings from decay, breathe new life into neglected parks and landscapes, and encourage communities to record and celebrate their stories.”
In another budget year, this could be a good idea.
