£180,000 for Plymouth projects

Crowdfund Plymouth is a pioneering campaign to support great ideas from businesses, communities and charities in Plymouth

Plymouth City Council has turned to Crowdfunder to look for projects that are near to developments, or that reduce the impact of development. 

They’re supporting projects that help improve the city, and make it a great place to live, work and play. 

This year they are also looking to support larger projects with a bigger pledge if the benefits to Plymouth make them eligible. 

You could get up £20,000 or 50% of your funding target (whichever the lesser) if you meet the criteria and priorities.

Start crowdfunding to find out if you could be eligible.
