CrowdFundLeicester is a new community crowdfunding initiative which gives people the opportunity to pitch their ideas, big and small, for projects which will make Leicester an even better place to live, work, study and visit.

From community gardens and street murals to festivals and sports facilities, Leicester has a new way to support local projects. CrowdFundLeicester is the City Mayor’s initiative which seeks to engage communities to work collectively to make innovative project ideas a practical reality.

The City Mayor is looking to support ideas by providing areas of land to deliver the proposal. The Community Engagement Fund will also allow the City Mayor to make pledges of up to £10,000 to back ideas which are supported by the crowd.

If you are interested in creating a project as part of CrowdFundLeicester then join us at our interactive workshop to find out all you need know to start your crowdfunding campaign. You will:

  • Learn how to define your project idea;
  • Get tips for presenting your project page clearly;
  • Access advice to start creating your campaign plan;
  • Discover how to identify potential backers;
  • Get advice on marketing and communicating your project;
  • Receive a free guide to running a successful campaign.

Whether your project is big or small, this is your opportunity to learn how you can make a real difference in your local area.
