29 Mar Crowdfunding in Aberdeen
An exciting new funding initiative, launched on Tuesday, 21 March 2017, gives individuals, community groups and businesses in Aberdeen the chance to turn ideas into reality.
Aberdeen City Council, joining forces with an array of local organisations and Crowdfunder UK, are embrace the crowdfunding phenomenon, with the aim of making a lasting impact not only on the future of the city but also on the future of residents.
Crowdfunding is where a large number of people contribute a relatively small amount of money, typically via the Internet, towards a project or venture which is of interest to them.
Crowdfunding Aberdeen will enable organisations to move away from projects being fully funded by governing bodies.
Applicants will not only receive assistance with funding but support will also be provided in the form of training.
The scheme is designed to encourage partnership working with cross-organisation bodies. It will create strong community links and empower residents by giving them the chance to turn their ideas in to reality.
As a local charity we support this whole-heartedly. If you would like to find out more about crowdfunding visit: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/funds/crowdfund-aberdeen.
