Growing Great Places – community crowdfunding

People make places great. Kirklees Council are pledging £50k of funding for local groups and citizens over the next year to support great ideas for making our local places even better.

Growing Great Places is a new community crowdfunding initiative which is all about bringing people and places together. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact in your local area. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started.

This new programme can help you to build a campaign around your idea and get pledges of support from local people. Kirklees Council will also pledge to fund successful projects that will improve our towns, villages and communities.

There will be a fund of £50k available in the coming year, with projects potentially getting pledges of up to £5k to support their campaign, plus workshops to help you pitch your idea.

You can register to take part in the the launch event on Thursday 23rd May 2019 at The Media Centre in Huddersfield or visit the programme website to find out more:
