The ‘Projects that matter: Brighton & Hove’ competition is being launched next week to find meaningful projects right here on our doorstep making a difference to our city’s local communities.
Entrants may be not-for-profit groups or organisations looking to help a disadvantaged community or make a difference to people’s lives locally.
They may have an idea to tackle plastic waste, help the homeless, address mental health or to put the heart back into their community.
To be in with a chance of receiving one of the £1000 prizes, projects must demonstrate they meet the following criteria:
- Based in Brighton & Hove, and delivering projects locally.
- Have an appropriate formal structure – individuals or unconstituted groups are not eligible
- Tackling a local issue/concern or making improvements to their community.
- Running their first crowdfunding campaign.
Each of the five successful projects that matter will receive £1000 worth of extra funding towards a Crowdfunder campaign, as well as support and mentoring to create their Crowdfunder, plus coverage from Giving Times to help promote their Crowdfunder campaigns.
The campaign call-for-entry launches on Monday 11 March at 10 am, with entries closing on Friday 15th March at noon. Successful applicants will be announced on Monday 18 March.
To be in with a chance of receiving the £1,000 pledge entrants should head to https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/projects-that-matter-brighton-and-hove and simply say (in no more than 100 words) what their project is all about and why it meets the campaign criteria.
