Event description

Description

Got an idea in mind to improve your local area?

Will it bring people together?

If your answer is yes to both, then read on…

Essex has a new way to offer funding support to local projects - the Essex Crowd is a crowdfunding movement for you to share your ideas within your local community, amongst your friends or neighbours, or even with local businesses and other interested parties.

Through the Essex Crowd we want to support as many of your ideas as possible, so once your campaign is live, share widely to gain community backing – pledges start from as little as £2 – and your idea will be in line for a pledge of up to £5,000 from Essex County Council.

This is not a regular grants programme so to help you on your way to getting your project onto the Essex Crowd, we are running a workshop. Join us for this interactive workshop and you will:

  • Learn how to define your project idea
  • Get tips for presenting your project page clearly
  • Start creating your campaign plan
  • Discover how to identify potential backers
  • Get advice on marketing and communicating your project
  • Receive a free guide to running a successful campaign

Whether your project is big or small, this is your chance to make a real difference in your local area. Learn more about The Essex Crowd here.
