Crowdfund Staffordshire is a great way for any local charity, voluntary organisation, business, social enterprise or individual to help increase community capacity through the support of local people and those from those across the world.
Anyone ready to go can sign up and start campaigning now at http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/funds/crowdfund-staffordshire. But there’s also a free help for anyone considering crowdfunding but don’t know where to start – from downloadable packs to help create an attractive web page on Crowdfund Staffordshire, right through to how to plan and run their month-long fundraising campaign.
Go online at https://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/community/Community-Action-and-Doing-Your-Bit/Resources-for-partners.aspx to download social media posts graphics, web banners and additional copy and use as you see fit through your communications channels (you can also retweet etc from @StaffordshireCC and our Facebook page)
· start talking to people about the ‘Children and Families Fund’, and encourage them to go to http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/funds/crowdfund-staffordshire/extra-funding to start a conversation with the county council about their project that could be eligible for funding.
