Community Initiatives Fund


WSCC's Community Initiative Fund’s final funding window of 2018/19 is open to applications via West Sussex Crowd.

 Since launching in May,  more than £40,000 has been pledged to 23 successful crowdfunding campaigns across the county.

Among awards in Round Two, we contributed towards a new heating system installation at a Hassocks guide hut and gave backing to an educational horticulture project in Selsey.

Open to charities, groups, organisations and more, project creators should upload their idea to the Crowd and pitch to the CIF by Monday 14 January 2019.

Crowdfunding campaigns must have started fundraising by Thursday 24 January in order to be considered at their relevant County Local Committee meeting.
