Crowdfund Sunderland

Crowdfund Sunderland is a community crowdfunding programme which was launched in January 2020.

The first funding round has already seen an amazing response from the general public, especially amazing as many of the campaigns have taken place during the Covid-19 crisis.

The next round of Crowdfund Sunderland will launch on Thursday 17 September. If you have a project idea and would like to be part of the next round, visit Crowdfund Sunderland.

2020 might not have been what we had hoped for, but if the pandemic has highlighted anything, it showed us the power of communities coming together to achieve amazing things in the face of adversity.


As we launch the new round of Crowdfund Sunderland, we are looking forward to seeing projects that will bring people together this Summer! So do you have an idea for a community project in your local area? From community gardens and cycle hubs to workshops, art trails and murals - we want to hear from you! 

You're invited to the launch of the Spring funding round to find out how you can pitch for funding from Sunderland City Council, Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group and Public Health Sunderland to help crowdfund your project.
