We want to inspire Hertfordshire based groups and charities to grow local projects and raise funds that benefit the community via Crowdfund Hertfordshire. Crowdfunding provides an online platform for voluntary sector organisations to extend their reach, raise awareness and find new donors. In addition to raising funds from the wider community, organisations can also apply for additional funding from local and national funds.
Here in Hertfordshire there are several local funders looking to support innovative not-for-profit projects that aim to make communities stronger, more connected, and more inclusive as well as projects that aim to make Hertfordshire carbon neutral and tackle climate changeThe site provides access to a range of local funds including:The Sustainable Hertfordshire Fund
Match funding grants of up to £5,000 are available to support projects and activities that are helping Hertfordshire become carbon neutral and tackle climate change. The fund aims to inspire and back projects that support Hertfordshire County Council's climate emergency response by assisting with one or more of their ambitions. Click here
