From music festivals to art installations, guerrilla gardening to pop up markets, if you have an idea to make the City even better, this is your opportunity to make your project idea happen. The City of London also have a £30k fund, with a maximum pledge of £5,000, available to support projects crowdfunding within the square mile.
This programme is only open to organisations that fall into one of the following categories:
Constituted Voluntary Organisation
Exempt or excepted Charity
Once you have achieved about 10% your target (and / or a good number of backers from the community) the Corporation will assess your project, and the support from the community, and decide whether or not to pledge to your project -
The amount the City of London will pledge will depend on the size of the project, how it delivers against their priorities, the impact it will have and the buy in from the community.
Note: the City of London Corporation will not be the first organisation to pledge as they want to see that there is community support for your project.
