CreatINg Places

CreatINg Places employs a donation and reward-based method of crowdfunding called “crowdgranting”. In crowdgranting, citizens actively support projects and activities through web-based donations which, if the fundraising goal is reached within a set time, are matched by a sponsor.

The CreatINg Places program is available to projects located in Indiana communities or neighborhoods which contain a traditional downtown or traditional neighborhood commercial node. Non-profit entities (with 501c3 or 501c4 status) and Local Units of Government are eligible to apply.

CreatINg Places

Since starting last fall, our new CreatINg Places crowdgranting program has helped eight communities secure over $650,000 in funding for ten projects that improve public spaces.

Now is your turn.

Join us for a pair of webinars that we, along with our partners at Patronicity, are hosting about CreatINg Places. We’ll take you through the process of how to apply, how previous applicants have used the program in their communities, and more!
