Kent County Council: Crowdfund Kent

Local Grants Wednesday September 28th, 2022 11:59pm

Kent County Council’s (KCC) digital funding programme, in partnership with Spacehive, seeks to help fund community-led coronavirus recovery projects across the county in order to become more vibrant, resilient and connected post-pandemic.

Alongside registering your organisation with the crowdfunding platform, Spacehive, where any member of the public can donate, Kent organisation’s are also invited to pitch their project ideas to KCC in the hope to be awarded up to £15,000 (or 50% of the crowdfunding target) in match-funding for their project. Additional funding is available to projects in the Folkestone & Hythe district – click ‘Find out more’ below for T&Cs.

To be eligible to apply, projects should contribute to the following:

  • Supporting community action in Kent particularly activities that are focused on supporting people who are facing financial difficulties or who are isolated as a result of Covid.
  • Supporting community assets and venues in Kent, that contribute to our local communities and local connections, improving wellbeing.
  • Helping to maintain the volunteering offer/social action we have seen during the pandemic post Covid 19.

Projects must benefit Kent (KCC area) residents and priority will be only offered to Kent-led constituted organisations (e.g. registered charities, CICs, community or voluntary groups) whose projects:

  • contribute to improving places, spaces or residents’ quality of lives; and
  • demonstrate creativity / innovation.

Deadline: Wednesday 28 September 2022

This fund is not managed by Funding for All. Please click ‘Find out more’ and contact the funder directly for more information.
