Get £5,000
for your planet positive idea

Have you got a great idea that needs funding?

Raise £5,000 on Crowdfunder and you could get up to £5,000 from Portsmouth City Council as part of #BackTheFuture: Portsmouth Climate Challenge!

We’re encouraging people to tell us how, with their environmental ideas, they can tackle the climate emergency in Portsmouth.

Ten successful projects will be chosen to get a portion of £30,000 in match funding (up to £5,000 per project) from Portsmouth City Council to go towards a crowdfunding campaign to fund their
planet positive idea.

Tell us your idea

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 the criteria for full details and to see if you're eligible, and get in touch if you have any questions.

The rest of the match funding will then be available on a first come, first served basis where the terms and conditions apply.
