Birmingham’s Be Bold Crowdfunding is an initiative launched by Birmingham City Council (BCC), in partnership with crowdfunding platform Spacehive. We are seeking to help fund the delivery of ward and neighbourhood projects that positively impact upon things that matter to local people and local communities. Click 'Create a project' below to get started...

As part of this crowdfunding programme, as well as attracting pledges from local people and organisations with an interest in your project, BCC also have a funding pot of £1.18 million available across 11 wards to support campaigns through the local element of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Funding.

Successful campaigns can receive a BCC pledge of up to 50% of your project costs (up to 75% in exceptional circumstances) from the council. There are different routes for pitching for funding from Birmingham City Council for projects of different scales:

  • Tier 1 Fund - simplified pitching route for projects with a value of up to £4,000, with up to £2,000 available per project
  • Tier 2 Fund - standard pitching route for projects with a value of over £4,000, with up to £20,000 available per project 

See below for more information.
