Crowd Match Fund

Communities are stronger when they own the things that matter most to them

Community shares are an effective way for people to raise the funds for projects that benefit local residents. That's why Big Society Capital gave projects an extra boost with up to £100,000 in match funding for local enterprises or businesses that were aiming to be community owned.

This funding has now been fully allocated, but you can still crowdfund for your community project by clicking the button below.
