Find some funding

Our Vale Fund logo

Aylesbury Vale District Council’s £50,000 Our Vale fund is pledging up to £5,000 to community projects in Aylesbury Vale. Now it is encouraging people to avoid missing out on being a part of this funding round and to submit their community project idea by Monday, 30 September.

Community projects across Aylesbury Vale are benefiting from funds raised through crowdfunding platform Our Vale. With Our Vale, people can turn project ideas into reality – whether they are looking to transform a shared space, inspire visitors or enhance the Vale. There’s £200,000 available from funders and supporters to pledge towards community projects crowdfunding through Our Vale, including the council’s own Our Vale fund.

Aylesbury Vale has already seen crowdfunding achievements in the local community including developments to recreational grounds, improvements to adventure equipment, support for youth clubs and assisting with the opening of the Paralympic heritage centre – and all were made possible by the Our Vale platform.

Councillor Howard Mordue, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resource, said: ‘Crowdfunding has proven to be a fantastic way to give innovative community projects a much needed boost. The £50,000 available from AVDC’s Our Vale fund will help empower local people to add value to the wider community, improving the quality of life for all.’
