RSA Catalyst provides money, expertise and crowdfunding to Fellow-led ideas that aim to have a positive social impact. It gives £100,000 every year in grants, connects projects and ventures to support from within the Fellowship and helps them run crowdfunding campaigns on the RSA's crowdfunding area on Kickstarter.
What RSA Catalyst offers:
- Crowdfunding: Advice and publicity from staff and Fellows to run a crowdfunding campaign on the RSA's curated area on Kickstarter
- Grants: Initial grants of £1,000 to £2,000 and additional grants of £5,000
- Non-financial support: RSA staff will match your venture to Fellows who have volunteered their time and expertise through the SkillsBank and raise awareness of your project through our Fellowship and public platforms.
