Stroud Community Agriculture carry out informal fundraising activities as and when they need to raise money at different stages of their project. They have used public meetings as a way to invite people to donate money, for example by putting up big blank posters where people could record their offers of support and having contact forms for people to fill in to donate money. At their first public meeting they secured pledges for over £200 by these means. They also approach their members for financial support to purchase particular pieces of equipment, and have a box to tick on their joining form if people want to help by providing a loan or making a gift to the project.
