Crowdfund Staffordshire

Whilst the county council cannot do or fund everything it once did or would like to do, there is some funding available from the county council or other organisations in Staffordshire to support priority areas.

Some of them are ‘match-funding’, which means that they will match the money raised by the community or from other sources. Crowdfund Staffordshire is an online platform that can help you harness the power of the crowd and reach thousands of people interested in supporting good causes. It’s easy to set up your project on Crowdfund Staffordshire.

Did you know that 75% of people in Staffordshire regularly donate to good causes? It’s well worth getting started on ‌ Crowdfund Staffordshire to unlock the power of the crowd and make your ideas a reality. If you’re fundraising to do a project to help vulnerable children and families, you could get up to £5,000 to help.
