23rd Sep HIE Toolkit and Webinar Published – Apply Now to Take Part!

call to action for crowdfunding project

We’re working with Highlands and Islands Enterprise to support community groups in the region who want to use crowdfunding to fund their projects as part of their awesome Crowdfunding Pilot. It’s been a pretty brilliant journey so far that’s seen us helping save endangered trees on Arran and sponsoring saplings at Tighnabruaich, and meeting some amazing community groups along the way.

And it’s not over yet!
