Projects that matter


£10,000 for projects that matter
in Winchester

To celebrate the launch of Crowdfund Winchester, Crowdfunder have teamed up with Winchester City Council to award 5 winners £2,000 towards a crowdfunding campaign.

The competition is open to non-for-profit organisations and businesses in the Winchester District that are implementing change and supporting Winchester communities.

You may have an idea to tackle the climate emergency, help the homeless, address mental health or one which puts life back into your community. You may have a great idea for a new product, service or experience that you’re looking to take to the next level; Winchester City Council and Crowdfunder want to help you make it happen.

Not only will the five winners receive a £2,000 pledge towards their Crowdfunder campaign, our expert coaches will be on hand, ready to share their crowdfunding expertise and know-how to help bring the winning ideas to life.

Entries close on Monday 24th February at midday. The winners will be announced on Friday 28th February. 

This competition is now closed. Please check back soon for live crowdfunding!
