CEC Warmer Greener Community Buildings Fund
Cheshire East Council has launched a new crowdfunding initiative to support decarbonisation-based rural community projects.
The initiative, called the Cheshire East Warmer Greener Community Buildings Fund, will provide funding for projects that improve the quality of life for residents in Cheshire East.
In partnership with Spacehive, the community fundraising platform, the Warmer, Greener Community Buildings Fund initiative will enable organisations from the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector across the borough to exclusively access funding for a number of improvement initiatives.
To pitch for funding through the Cheshire East Crowd – a crowdfunding initiative to encourage, support and create community projects that will make a difference, the council and Spacehive will be looking for projects that:
- Are based in or will benefit the residents of Cheshire East
- Will strengthen the social fabric and foster a sense of local pride and belonging, through investment in activities that enhance physical, cultural and social ties and amenities. This includes community infrastructure (buildings), local green space and community-led projects
- Demonstrate a passion to make a difference within the local community.
