Crowdfund Derby

Building stronger communities together

Up to £5,000 available for your community project

Do you have a great idea for a project in your community? Crowdfund Derby provides a space for Derby based groups to raise awareness and funds for activities that are important to them and their community.

Derby City Council has created a fund of £60,000 to provide match funding to help make your great idea into a reality.

We want to support projects that build strong, vibrant, active and connected communities. Have a look at the funding criteria to see if your idea may be eligible for support.

Want to learn how to crowdfund? Catch up on our recent series of online workshops for projects in Derby.

If you have already started a project, find out how to apply for this fund.

There are some fantastic ideas for community projects in Derby, we can now work together to make these projects come to life to benefit local people and communities.
