People’s Award

Tech4Good People’s Award powered by Crowdfunder brand image

The People’s Award is one of our most popular awards because it is chosen by the public who vote through the Crowdfunder platform. All of this year’s Tech4Good Awards finalists will be entered into our People’s Award, and need to set up their own Crowdfunder page to raise funds or generate support for their project. The finalist that draws the most supporters through Crowdfunder will take home the coveted People’s Award.

The gap between finding out that you’re a finalist and the award ceremony itself is a great opportunity to promote that you’re a finalist in the Tech4Good Awards. Being a Tech4Good finalist gives you good credibility to start crowdfunding and sharing your Crowdfunder page with your supporters. There are lots of benefits to crowdfunding, and we wanted to highlight some below:

  • It’s a quick way of raising much needed funds and it’s completely free and won’t cost you a penny!
  • It’s an additional platform for your project to gain exposure from, plus all Tech4Good entries will be visible on its own leaderboard
  • It’s another opportunity for you to win a Tech4Good Award, this time voted for by the public, all while raising funds for your important project

We will be launching the Crowdfunder campaign, along with its leaderboard, four weeks before the Tech4Good winners are announced so finalists will have this amount of time to share their campaign and raise funds. We know that crowdfunding can seem daunting for those that haven’t done it before, so if you’re chosen as a finalist we’ll share a compact how-to guide so that you’re fully prepared in the lead up to the launch of the People’s Award.




The Tech4Good Awards are organised by AbilityNet and BT and supported by a range of sponsors and partners:
