Check out some great crowdfunding opportunities at Public Spaces, Community Places. The program is a partnership of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Patronicity and the Michigan Municipal League.
The whole thing is simple- envision a placemaking project in your community, use the platform to get it funded and receive a matching grant via MEDC. It’s that easy!
The ideas are amazing. Take a peek at the projects, donate if you’re able and bring your own ideas forward. Twelve have already met their goals for funding and other projects are online now. There are trail head projects, art spaces, community gardens, greening of alley ways, and more.
Crowdfunding (peanut butter) and placemaking (jelly). The perfect match!
