|Co-op Local Causes||Very easy||High||£1500 - £6000||Only available in Coop Group areas. Next application round will be in late spring 2020. This will be too late for Common Ground specifically, but will be great for your district capacity building more generally.|

|Awards for All||Medium||Medium||Up to £10,000||Means tested - you need to show a level of deprivation to get the money|
|Donation-based crowdfunding||Easy||High||Varies||Crowdfunding is a way of raising donations by asking a large number of people each for a small amount of money. You have several platforms to choose from. Consider pages such as GoFundMe, Justgiving or Crowdfunder. Check carefully that the page fee is 0%.|
