It's that time again... We have just launched our latest crowdfund and we're looking for support either as donations to the crowdfund or spreading the word. Can you help please?
The money we raise goes to small, grassroots groups set up by a community to tackle an issue they’re facing. For example, Black Mothers Matter began life as three friends on maternity leave discussing the statistics facing black women and their babies via WhatsApp. They decided to form a group to address this injustice.
The groups we fund often struggle to get financial support elsewhere. Radical Resilience Project told us "As a grassroots community group who are not registered as a charity and want to do things differently we have limited funding options". £1,000 can go a long way when you're self-funding your project or relying on small donations.
We believe in the power of community-led groups to bring about justice for their communities and would love to get more money out to them to support their work. If you do too, please make a donation and/ or share the crowdfund with others so we can give out more grants:
There's more info about the groups that have received funding so far here: www.bristolredistro.org/funded-groups.html
We're really pleased and grateful that a number of the Round 2 groups have agreed to be decision-makers for the next round, which means they'll get to decide which applicants receive money. Now we just need to raise the cash!
Feel free to email email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to know more about how we work and who we support.
