Better Bristol 2017

One of Bristol’s strengths is the huge amount of energy and innovation that comes from local community groups and grassroots organisations.

To support this, Bristol Green Capital Partnership community interest company (BGCP) is investing £45,000 in local ideas and projects that will contribute to making Bristol a sustainable city with a high quality of life for all.

If you are a community group, charity, social enterprise or small business based in Bristol, and your idea matches the Better Bristol criteria, you will be eligible to receive free coaching for your crowdfunding campaign and have a chance of receiving 50% of your target from BGCP.

We’re looking for projects that have a crowdfunding target of between £6,000 and £8,000, that will launch on 1 June 2017. Projects that reach 50% of their target (with at least 40 backers) will be helped over the line with a 50% match-fund provided by BGCP – until the £40,000 runs out.

Remaining projects will receive ongoing promotion to help them to raise funds from the crowd, with one of these projects receiving a grant of £5,000 – awarded to a project that demonstrates an exceptional commitment to inclusion and equality in their aims.

Online submission for Better Bristol 2017 is now closed. 



Better Bristol crowdfunding projects will launch on 1 June
