Crowdfund Birmingham — new funding opportunities for community benefit projects

Click to go to Crowdfund Birmingham

Further to this post, we now have further news about Crowdfund Birmingham, the new joint initiative between Birmingham City Council and Crowdfunder.

Launched at the start of the year, Crowdfund Birmingham  is a new campaign to help people with good ideas raise the money they need to get them off the ground. Successful projects will be able to double their money.

Birmingham City Council has up to £10,000 per project to pledge on crowdfunding projects in Birmingham that meet its funding criteria. Find out more here.

And if you’re new to crowdfunding and want to learn more about how to make it work for you, there are free online webinars that will give you the help you need. The webinars cover:

  • Planning your project @ 4.00pm on Wednesday 24th May 2017
  • Creating your project @ 4.00pm on Wednesday 7th June 2017
  • Running your project @ 4.00pm on Wednesday 21st June 2017
  • Live surgery session @ 4.00pm Wednesday 5th July 2017


There will also be an information event, almost certainly in June — I’ll post details here as soon as we are advised of the date and venue.

Sign up for webinars.
