What can we fund?

Campaigns launching as part of CrowdfundDevon could be eligible for a contribution from the Communities Together Fund from Exeter City Council and Devon County Council, also supported by Sport England. The contribution could be up to 50% of your funding target (up to the maximum value of £2,500).

Projects must raise 25% of their target before they will be considered eligible for possible funding.

The fund exists to encourage communities to work together, identifying new ideas for their mutual benefit.

Applications are welcome from community projects benefitting, enhancing and making a difference to communities.
