Better Bristol 2017

Bristol Green Capital Partnership is investing £45,000 in local projects that contribute to making Bristol a sustainable city with a high quality of life for all.

In April 2017 we invited local groups and organisations to take part in the Better Bristol campaign and be in with the chance of receiving 50% of their crowdfunding target from Bristol Green Capital Partnership (BGCP).

From 1 June, projects that raise half of their target from at least 40 supporters will be helped over the line with a 50% match fund provided by BGCP – until the pot of £40,000 runs out.

And there's a one-off grant of £5,000 that will be awarded to one project that demonstrates an exceptional commitment to inclusion and equality in their aims.

Bristol Green Capital Partnership is excited to be supporting local projects that will contribute to making Bristol a more sustainable city – but they need your support to unlock our match-funding. Back your favourite #BetterBristol project below.
