Cornwall Councillor Community 

Chest Fund

As part of Crowdfund CornwallCornwall Council and Crowdfunder aim to support small-scale projects that deliver a clear and demonstrable benefit to local communities in Cornwall.

Any locally constituted and recognised 'not for profit' organisation which seeks to serve the people of Cornwall will qualify.

This collaborative campaign is part of our wider commitment to inspire individuals, community groups, charities and businesses to enhance local communities, increase resilience and support vulnerable people.

Some Cornwall Councillors are using Crowdfunder to help make their Community Chest funds go further and to help projects attract wider support. 

If your project is based in Cornwall you could potentially receive a pledge of up to £1,000 from your local councillors’ Community Chest fund.

Types of local projects that could be eligible: community, vulnerable, children and young people, older people, facilities, environment projects, community safety, arts, events, heritage, buildings, improvements, capacity building, health, disability, sports, open spaces. 

In the first instance please speak to your local Cornwall Councillor or refer to the guidance notes for more contact details.
