Chiltern Crowdfunding

Chiltern Crowdfunding will provide local residents and organisations an opportunity to raise funds towards a local community project

Crowdfunding enables projects to seek funding from a variety of sources whilst gathering support from the 'crowd'. Example projects have included a new children's playground, the project raised over £20,000 and was supported by 44 backers including a local council.

Chiltern Crowdfunding will enable Chiltern District Council to provide additional funding via a pledge of up to 50% of the project costs up to £5000 via the Spacehive platform

Projects have to meet at least one of the below aims:

  • Supporting services that improve opportunities for older people to live fuller safer, more active and ultimately more fulfilling life-styles and become more integrated into local communities
  • Improving the health and wellbeing of the population and reducing health inequalities
  • Providing an environment for young people to enjoy, stay safe, be healthy, active, make a positive contribution and achieve economic wellbeing

If you have a project that supports residents of Chiltern District to be more healthy and active we want to hear from you!
