Community Business Crowdmatch

Backing community businesses to make their idea happen

Community businesses may look like any other business on the outside, but at their heart lie a dedicated group of local people working hard to make a difference to their areas.

Power to Change partnered with Crowdfunder to launch the Community Business Crowdmatch to back new or existing community businesses to deliver brilliant community-led projects.

The deadline for applications to the programme was June 30th 2022. This fund has now been fully allocated, but you can still crowdfund for your idea by clicking the button below.
