£30,000 match funding for 10 planet positive projects in Cornwall

Tell me more

We’re encouraging green initiatives to let us know what ​they’re doing in response to the climate emergency and how crowdfunding will play its part​.

Ten successful entries will be chosen to win a share of £30,000 in match funding (up to £5,000 per project) from Cornwall Council to go towards a crowdfunding campaign.

We want to hear from individuals, groups and organisations who are tackling Cornwall's climate emergency head-on and inspiring others in their endeavour to do so!

We’re ready to #BackTheFuture in Cornwall. Are you?

How the funding works

The remaining £20,000 match funding will be available on a first come, first served basis to the ten successful projects subject to hitting milestones two and three outlined below.


Milestone one

Raise £1,000 from at least 30 supporters, receive a £1,000 pledge.
