Fund description:

Crowdfund Devon has been set up to support community groups, start-up businesses, charities and individuals across the county to raise money from the crowd and unlock extra funding from the Crowdfund Devon partners. Devon County Council, West Devon Borough Council, Teignbridge District Council, Exeter City Council and the Police, are all working with Crowdfunder, to build opportunities for community groups to bid for funding to help local projects get off the ground.

Projects that run an all-or-nothing crowdfund on Crowdfunder and reach 100% of their funding target can unlock extra funding from one of the Crowdfund Devon partners. The funds are:

  • DCC’s Community Chest (Devon County Council)
  • Community Resilience Fund (D&C Police)
  • Crowdfund West Devon
  • Crowdfund Exeter
  • Stronger Communities Fund (Teignbridge)

Crowdfund Devon is for projects that benefit the community, support wellbeing, work towards a better environment, reward innovation or support business ideas.
