Community projects and charities based within three miles of Sovereign homes in the south and south-west of England can apply for a share of £80,500 to boost the funding they’ve already raised.
Sovereign says it is particularly interested in projects that focus on inclusion, equality, and diversity; health and wellbeing; education; social inclusion; sustainable communities and community cohesion; and the environment.
Kate Sheppard, community development officer at Sovereign, said: “Last year, we gave over £100k to community projects fundraising through Crowdfunder.
“It’s a fantastic platform, as it allows people to support projects that really mean something to them.
“We’ll match up to £10k and are committed to empowering our communities.”
Dawn Bebe, co-founder and director of Crowdfunder, added: “This is a truly collaborative and innovative partnership. We have seen dozens of great ideas become a reality thanks to Crowdfund Sovereign.
“We are really pleased to continue our relationship, welcome the additional community investment, and very much look forward to working with more people to make real change in their communities.”
Applications are open until 1 March 2022.
