The crowdfunding platform

We want to revolutionise the way in which we support local communities!

Crowdfunding is a way of paying for projects by raising money from ‘the crowd’ including local people, councils and businesses. The Growing a Greener Britain fund of £50,000 supports local communities to crowdfund their projects in green spaces. Crowdfunding enables anyone- from members of the community to public and private bodies- to pledge money to projects to turn ideas into reality. To help local projects hit their target, Growing a Greener Britain is able to pledge up to £5,000 to projects that match our aims, demonstrate creativity and innovation and critically support from ‘the crowd’!
