Introducing… Chiltern Crowdfunding

Friday, September 13th, 2019

(published 3rd September, updated 13th September)
Chiltern Crowdfunding posterChiltern District Council (CDC) has recently launched Chiltern Crowdfunding, a new funding scheme which will provide local residents and organisations an opportunity to raise funds towards a local community project. The scheme will enable CDC to provide additional funding via a pledge of up to 50% of the project costs up to £5,000 via the Spacehive platform.

Because of the move to a unitary Buckinghamshire Council, the scheme is time limited: projects will not be accepted after 1st January 2020; crowdfunding must be completed by 29th February 2020; and projects must be delivered by March 2021. Projects will be funded on a first come first served basis, and once the fund has run out no more pledges will be made.

Applicants can be any individual, voluntary organisation, charity or community-based organisation which operates on a not for profit basis, is open to the general public and is providing services or facilities for the benefit of residents in Chiltern District. All projects will have to evidence that they have at least 10 backers on the platform and have raised at least 15% via the crowdfunding process.

The scheme was launched formally on Thursday 12th September, with an event at Chiltern District Council’s Council Chamber.

There are also crowdfunding workshops to inform potential applicants, at the following times and venues:

Wednesday 18th September 6.30pm-8.30pm – Chesham Town Hall

Thursday 26th September 6.30pm-8.30pm – Chiltern District Council, Amersham

Wednesday 2nd October 6.30pm-8.30pm – Chalfont St Peter Community Centre
