It’s two years since greenspace scotland launched MyParkScotland and they have been supporting groups with their crowdfunding projects through training, mentoring and workshop sessions. They have now pulled all of this experience together, and worked with crowdfunding experts at Twintangibles, to prepare the MyParkScotland Crowdfunding Resource Kit which was launched recently.

The MyParkScotland Crowdfund Resource Kit has been designed to help groups wanting to crowdfund for parks and greenspace projects.

Funded by Awards for All, Scotland the Resource Kit introduces and explains the concept of crowdfunding and helps groups plan, run and deliver their crowdfunding campaigns. Included within the Resource Kit is the Crowdfunding Campaign Planning Worksheet, this editable document is designed to help groups think about key elements of their crowdfunding campaign including growing your “crowd”, getting the messaging right, how to get that message across and what to do when your campaign is complete.

greenspace scotland has announce that they have received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to kick-start the development of an Endowment Fund for Scotland’s parks.

This project will develop a £1million endowment fund for Scotland’s parks.  It is the first step towards our ambition for a multi-million endowment fund which will help to keep Scotland’s parks in good heart for future generations to enjoy. Over the next 3 years, the HLF grant of £500,000 will be matched with donations from individuals, businesses and trusts to raise that first magic million. The funds will be invested to provide an endowment to support Scotland’s parks in perpetuity.

Julie Procter, Chief Executive of greenspace scotland said:
“Scotland’s parks are well-used and much loved. We want to ensure they continue to be cherished and nurtured so that we hand them on in good heart for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. The Scottish Parks Endowment Fund is an easy and simple way for everyone who uses and loves Scotland’s parks to make a donation, large or small, to support our treasured parks. And it’s a great way to grow the value of your donation: the HLF matching grant means that every £10 donated with gift-aid, becomes a £25 investment in the Park Endowment fund; every £100 becomes £250 and so on.”
