Crowdfund Cornwall

Supporting communities to make great ideas grow

Do you have a great idea for a project or initiative that needs funding? Cornwall Council is looking to support not-for-profit organisations working with local communities in Cornwall. 

We want to inspire individuals, community groups, charities and businesses to grow local projects and enhance nature with extra funding.

Do you have a seed of an idea that could help create more space for nature within your community?  If so, check out our Grow Nature Seed Fund page and you could be one step closer to helping nature grow. Over the next months we are encouraging applicants to branch out and make a simple application to support local tree and hedgerow planting on public land. Follow the link for more information.

Some of our Councillors are also using Crowdfunder to help make their Community chest funds go further and to help projects attract wider support.  Check out our Community Chest Fund page for more information.

And for projects working to increase community resilience within local communities and help to support vulnerable people, Devon and Cornwall Police are supporting projects with the Community Resilience Fund.

Want to learn how to crowdfund? Catch up on our recent series of webinars for projects in Cornwall.
