Planet positive ideas for you to get behind.

Devon County Council and Crowdfunder teamed up to find green initiatives who are responding to the climate emergency.

The below projects have been chosen to get a portion of £30,000 in match funding (up to £5,000 per project) from Devon County Council to go towards a crowdfunding campaign.

Entries for the Devon Climate Challenge are now closed

But if you have an idea on how to tackle the climate emergency in Devon you can still set up a project and start crowdfunding as part of #BackTheFuture.

What is match funding?

When you hit a certain target in raising money for your idea, one of our amazing partners will match the amount raised with their own donation - effectively DOUBLING the money raised!

Check out our available funds to see if you're eligible, and get in touch if you have any questions.

How the funding worked

Devon County Council had a pot of £30,000 in match funding ready to be handed out. Each successful idea received £1,000 as long as they raised the funds on Crowdfunder and met the criteria. The rest of the match funding was then available on a first come, first served basis where the terms and conditions apply.


Milestone one

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


Milestone two

Raise a further £1,500 from the crowd (total amount raised £3,500), receive a £1,500 pledge.


Milestone three

Raise a further £2,500 from the crowd (total amount raised £7,500), receive a £2,500 pledge.
