Event description

Description

* Interested in starting your own crowdfunding campaign for your community? Come along to one of our workshops to find out more. We’re holding these at St Matthews Big Local on Thursday 1st March 2018:-
Workshop 1: 9.30-11.30
Workshop 2: 14.00-16.00

From community gardens and street murals to festivals and sports facilities, Leicester has a new way to support local projects. CrowdFundLeicester is the City Mayor’s new crowdfunding initiative which gives people the opportunity to pitch their ideas, big or small, to make Leicester an even better place to live, work, study and visit.

The City Mayor is looking to support ideas in a number of ways. You might be interested in taking on some underused City Council owned land or perhaps pitching to the City Mayor’s Community Engagement Fund. Pledges up to £10,000 are available from that Fund for ideas that really will improve our city for those that need it most. We’re starting to link in with other potential backers too, including St Matthews Big Local who are also looking to support projects which benefit the residents of St Matthews.

If you are interested in becoming a project creator and being part of our CrowdFundLeicester movement then join us at one of our interactive workshops to find out all you need know. You will:

  • Learn more about Crowdfund Leicester;
  • Understand the funds available from the City Mayor, St Matthews Big Local and others;
  • Hear about the land offer from Leicester City Council and see some of the sites that are potentially available;
  • Get tips from successful project creators;
  • Access advice to start creating your campaign plan;
  • Explore how to best market and communicate your project.

Whether your project is big or small, this is your opportunity to learn how you can make a real difference in your local area through CrowdFundLeicester.
