Welcome to Pompey in the Community’s Expansion Campaign - a crowdfunding project powered by Hubbub

Thank you for taking the time to visit and we hope that you will support our campaign by sharing or making a donation.

What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a t-shirt or a project poster. Hubbub provides a platform to help campaigns to reach a potentially huge audience, and gives sponsors an easy way to donate.

Why are we raising money?

PitC has been serving the community for decades. Demand for our courses and programmes is incredibly high and we’ve had to start turning people away. We want to continue our amazing work and expand our reach so we can help support more Portsmouth people to achieve their goals. That is why we need to expand and we want to harness the power of the crowd to do it. We are reliant on the support of local people and this is a chance for people to give back in order to help us grow.

Why Crowdfunding?

We want all our donors to be a part of our journey. Not only will your support help us to fund the build (which we couldn’t afford on our own), it will ensure we have a large community of stakeholders engaged in the project and our future.

How much do you need to build the new building?

All-in-all, it will cost approximately £200,000 to build including furnishings. This estimate was produced by a local architect in collaboration with local tradesmen.

Who is matchfunding the project?

The project is being match funded by Pompey in the Community’s expansion fund. This fund is being made up of previous donations and support from local businesses, which will pound-for-pound match what is donated on the platform.

What charges are there on donations?

The only charge associated with your donation is the processing fee. This is charged by either PayPal or Stripe (depending on how you pay) and costs between 2 and 4 per cent of your donation. We expect that Gift Aid donations will cover these processing costs.
