Crowdfunding a Better Bristol

In April 2017, Bristol Green Capital Partnership invited local groups and organisations to take part in the Better Bristol campaign, to receive free expert coaching and be in with the chance of receiving 50% of their crowdfunding target from BGCP. As a result of the Better Bristol campaign, our £45,000 match-fund catalysed an additional £64,000 from the crowd – helping to make 16 local projects into a reality!

Congratulations to all the projects who took part in the #BetterBristol campaign!

“Being part of Better Bristol has been such a positive experience for us. The funding we’ve received will give Redcatch Community Garden the kick-start it needs to really get our project off the ground. It’s also given us confidence that we have our community well and truly behind us.”

Tina Badley, Redcatch Community Garden
