We've launched Crowdfund Kent, in partnership with Spacehive, to help fund community-led coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery projects across the county.
This exciting digital programme will enable communities to become more vibrant, resilient and connected post-pandemic.
We want to see a wide range of projects from all over Kent make use of this funding.
Projects that have already been fully funded include:
- transforming a disused building in Margate into a creative and cultural education hub for young people.
- raising £10,000 to support the most vulnerable people in Tunbridge Wells.
- purchasing a new truck for conservation volunteers in Tunbridge Wells.
- replacing perimeter fencing at Blue Bell Hill cricket ground.

Crowdfund Kent is a digital crowdfunding platform: This means anyone, or any organisation, can donate to the projects to help them reach their goal.
We will be committing £500,000 to support local projects up to maximum of £20,000 per project, or 50% of the funding target.
To be eligible for our funding, your project must benefit the wider community, and your organisation must be a registered charity, constituted community group or CIC (Community Interest Company).
