Crowd Fund Liverpool

Crowdfund LiverpoolDo you have a project idea that will help local people build more vibrant, resilient and connected communities and aid the recovery from Covid-19? Find out how to pitch your idea for round three of this fund.

What is #Crowdfund​Liverpool?

#CrowdfundLiverpool, launched by the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, is designed to help communities across the city imagine, fund and create projects that bring their local area to life. 

It aims to give residents the chance to attract funding from the community, council, businesses and foundations through an online portal called Spacehive.

How much money is available?

In total, there is £50,000 in the Mayoral Inclusive Growth Fund pledge pot for each round. Eligible projects could receive a maximum pledge of up to £10k or 40% of the total project costs.

You will also need to encourage the community - 'the crowd' - to support your project with pledges, social media support or 'in kind' donations. Pledges can be for as little as £2 and will only be debited when the project hits its fundraising target.

How to apply

Round three is now open. The theme is ‘Build Back Better’.

Do you have a project idea that puts local people at the heart of the efforts to help the city build back better? Can your project help create more vibrant, resilient and connected communities, whether that is by doing things differently, or re-imagining shared spaces?

You are encouraged to pitch inclusive ideas that support your community’s recovery from Covid-19 by responding to local challenges and opportunities. We would like projects to have considered equalities and to be inclusive i.e. accessible to all.

The deadline to put forward your own idea is 21st April 2021. You can get started by simply visiting Spacehive’s website and creating your own project page. To apply, simply create your project on Spacehive.
