Many local changemakers tell us their biggest challenge is raising money for their initiatives. Though money isn’t always necessary – we’ve recently learned how to run a community project without raising any money from CoderDojo’s Laura Ivers – just a small 200 or 500 Euro fund can often help local initiatives to kick things off.
At ChangeX we hope to provide more opportunities in the future for seed funding. Today we start with a pilot fund for changemakers based in County Wicklow. We’ve been awarded â‚¬5,000 by Wicklow County Council to help launch a number of social innovations across the County. This fund will be available in 10 â‚¬500 packages to local projects.
Who Can Apply
Anyone who is starting or developing one of the ideas on ChangeX in County Wicklow can apply.
What To Apply For
Whether you are a brand new starter of a Men’s Shed who needs some equipment, or you have a GIY group that would like to launch an urban gardening project and need to print some promotional material to build more awareness in your area, we would love to help bring your project to the next level.
How To Apply
You can submit your application through this form. Please just tell us clearly what you will need the money for. Applications will be accepted until September 30th.
We’re looking forward to helping you make your community in Wicklow a better place to live. If you have any more questions, please just leave a comment below or write to [email protected]
