Crowdfund Devon

Ready to make your idea happen?

Start crowdfunding

Crowdfund Devon is set up to support community groups, start-up businesses, charities and individuals across the county to raise money from the crowd and unlock extra funding from our partners. 

If you have a project that makes an impact to your community, supports wellbeing, works towards a better environment, rewards innovation or supercharges business ideas, then we want to hear from you.

To apply, start by adding your project to Crowdfunder. If you fit the bill, our Crowdfund Devon partners could put extra money into your project to help you reach your target.

Further help and support is also available for businesses and community projects in Devon.
