Want to increase the impact of your funds? Looking to attract more interesting projects from a more diverse range of applicants? Hoping to engage the wider community in the decisions affecting their area?
Whether turning an unloved space into a pocket garden, transforming a flyover set for demolition into an elevated park, creating a community farm, or learning about nature, civic crowdfunding allows people to come together to shape our shared spaces.
Organisations have funded projects in this space for decades and with the increasing popularity of crowdfunding, thousands of non-traditional funders are entering this space and amplifying the resources available to a new generation of project creators.
Join us for a panel discussion and learn how organisations, including Manchester City Council, the GLL and Growing a Greener Britain, are using civic crowdfunding to increase their impact, reduce barriers to entry and attract more interesting and innovative projects.
