Vote For Your Cause

How to Vote for a Cause

To vote for your favourite cause, you need to be a LoveBrum member.  Our members vote every month on the cause they feel is most in need of valuable funding. Any causes that don’t win are allowed to feature on LoveBrum again so eventually everyone gets the funding they need.

If you’re already a member you can click here to vote today!


Step 1

You sign up to become a LoveBrum member, giving you the power to vote on your favourite causes and a host of benefits. Find out more about membership benefits here.

Step 2

Throughout the month three new local causes seeking funding go live. During the forth week of the month LoveBrum members vote for their favourite.

Step 3

At the end of the month, the winning cause is announced and they receive valuable funding, and 12 months business and marketing support.
