Crowdfund Harrow

Building a Better Harrow together 

We’re looking to support our local community projects, so that we can make your great ideas happen. 

Local projects could be anything from community activities, repairing a local playground, to installing a disabled access ramp. It could be funding for arts and sports related initiatives to working with vulnerable adults – in short anything that helps build a better Harrow together.

First you need to get support from the Crowd. If your project fits the bill and you reach 25% of your funding target we can pledge between £100 and £2,000 in match-funding, or 50% of your funding total.

"There are lots of exciting ideas for local community projects – together we can help turn these ideas into reality and build a better Harrow"
