Plymouth City Council is supporting projects that help improve the city and make it a great place to live, work and play.

You need a crowdfunding project to apply for funding. Start or continue adding your project and, if eligible, you'll be prompted to apply.

Criteria

Projects must benefit people in Plymouth* and priority will be given to one or more of the following:

  • Project must be in an area of the city where development has taken place which has contributed to this fund.
  • Helps meet the demands that development places on the need for community services and facilities in the city.
  • Helps improve the local environment and public spaces.
  • Demonstrates added benefit for the city through for example, using local businesses or developing skills of local people.

*At least 75% of the people benefiting from your project should live in Plymouth.

Projects must be on all or nothing to be eligible.

Once an eligible project has raised 25% of their fundraising target from multiple pledges, Plymouth City Council may pledge to fund a further 50% of the target up to a maximum of £20,000.

The money pledged will be released only if the full fundraising target has been reached.

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.

"Receiving a pledge from Plymouth City Councilgave people more confidence in our project. Someof our pledges were quite large, so having councilsupport will have helped secure these"

We have more funding to give
