Dublin City Council is working with community fundraising platform Spacehive to launch an exciting opportunity for local residents to fundraise and deliver projects that matter to them.
This community crowdfunding programme will give residents in the Dublin City Council administrative area, the unique opportunity to crowdfund innovative locally-led projects that will bring together funding and support from neighbours, community networks, businesses and the Council.
Projects crowdfunded on Spacehive will help realise Dublin City Council’s vision of a dynamic, sustainable city that is future-ready, built on thriving, inclusive communities, a strong economy, a vibrant cultural life, and connected growth. From community gardens and allotments; sustainability and environmental projects, to energising spaces with art projects and murals, we can’t wait to hear the ambitious ideas that Project Creators want to launch.
