What can you apply for?

For every £1 you raise through Crowdfunder, Power to Change will match-fund each £1, to a maximum of £10,000. 

This programme will support community businesses, whether it’s for launching new ideas to help your neighbourhood, help meet increased demand, save a community space or help bridge a funding gap. Crowdfunding helps to increase your profile and gain more supporters.  

Through this fund Power to Change are particularly keen to support new and existing projects in more deprived areas of the country, and to work with communities experiencing racial inequity across England.
