New Funding Source: Crowdfunding via Patronicity

We blogged about this in July, and now have more details. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) has partnered with Michigan Municipal League and Patronicity to create a Michigan-based crowdfunding platform called Public Spaces Community Places. Residents and businesses in communities can use it to raise money for their own public spaces.

The cool thing: projects that meet fundraising goals will be backed by a matching grant of up to $100,000 from MEDC.

What kinds of projects?

  • Public Plaza & Green Space Development
  • Access to Public Amenities
  • Farmer’s Markets, Community Kitchens, Pop-Up Retail/Incubator Space
  • Alley Rehabilitation
  • Any other place based (or public space improvement) project

Read MEDC’s email for more information.
