Community encouraged to take advantage of crowd funding initiative
If you’re a local resident or community group with environmental projects you would like support for, or are inclined to support these kinds of projects then a new crowdfunding page could be just for you.
Administered by South West London Environmental Network, the SWLEN Crowdfund will be available for anyone with an idea, to make a difference to their community. The SWLEN team can help them put together a project and use the SWLEN Crowdfund to promote, collect funds and process Gift Aid, on behalf of a project.
Crowdfunding works by using social media to expand the reach of a project beyond its direct supporters by making it easy for people to share and donate online.
One of the first projects on SWLEN Crowdfund is an appeal by Richmond in Bloom to restart their gardening grants to schools’ scheme.
