If you can imagine it, you can crowdfund it. Westhive, bringing dreams to life.

West Oxfordshire District Council in partnership with community fundraising platform Spacehive launch an exciting opportunity to empower local people to fundraise projects to develop more inclusive, thriving and self-sufficient communities in West Oxfordshire.

The Westhive crowdfunding programme will enable residents and groups to collaborate and deliver locally-led projects that are genuinely supported by local community networks, businesses and West Oxfordshire District Council. 

West Oxfordshire District Council has a fund of £120,000 and are looking to invest in projects that will support a number of the Council’s outcomes aligned to community resilience, the environment, ecology and climate change. 

Westhive is about everyone, so at least  £20,000 of the pledge pot will be allocated to the funding of projects aimed at or brought forward by young people, so that they have the chance to take the driver’s seat and make the changes they want to see. 

Westhive crowdfund will support both capital and revenue funded projects, vastly increasing its scope and reach. The Council is committed to pledge and support innovative and impactful projects, allowing residents to influence and shape their communities.

The Spring 2024 round is open with a project workshop being held on the 28th of February, 12pm- 1pm - Register for free here

The deadline of the current round is the 24th of April. This means projects must be fully costed and permissions secured by this date.
