Crowdfund Derby

Building stronger communities together

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.

To help you reach your fundraising target we have two sources of extra funding available.

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

Rolls-Royce has created a fund of £10,000 to support young people from disadvantaged communities to achieve their potential.

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.
