The Community Innovation Fund

Have you ever considered crowdfunding to support and empower the people and communities of Birmingham as they look to fund local community projects?

The council is offering seed funding for projects that promote health and wellbeing and encourage a more independent, engaged and connected community.

Local projects can raise money from the Crowd, and then apply for funding from Birmingham City Council’s Community Innovation Fund to make their great ideas happen.

The council could pledge between £100 and £10,000 on crowdfunding projects that address the local priorities.

So if you have got something up your sleeve that’s going to make a real difference in Birmingham, then the council could back you to the tune of up to £10,000, or 50% of your funding total (whichever is the lesser).
