Devon County Councillors each have £10,000 of funding to give to worthy projects in their areas through their Locality Budgets. It is easy to apply, contact your local Devon County councillor.
Devon County Council also has money available through crowdfunding, as do East Devon District Council. Crowdfunding is all about promoting your proposal or idea to the wider crowd. Telling the crowd about your proposal, the reasons for it and the amount of funds you are trying to raise, and then seeing if they think your proposal is something that really matters to them, and which they are prepared to back financially.
Explore the possibilities that crowdfunding might open up for your project by visiting Crowdfund Devon for further information and resources to support you with crowdfunding. Crowdfund Devon, is a new crowdfunding site being piloted in partnership with several district/city councils, the Devon & Cornwall Police and Crowdfunder.
