Did you know you could get up to £5,000 for your community project

Do you have a great idea for a project in your community? Crowdfund Derby provides a space for Derby based groups to raise awareness and funds for activities that are important to them and their community.

We have created a fund of £60,000 to provide match funding to help turn your great idea into a reality.

Together with Community Action Derby and Crowdfunder UK, we want to support projects that build strong, vibrant, active and connected communities. Have a look at the funding criteria to see if your idea may be eligible for support.
