Why we are on Spacehive

We want to back new ideas for creating more vibrant local communities. Are you planning a project that could bring your community together and have a lasting impact on your local area and local people? Can you demonstrate genuine crowdfunding support and demand from your community? We’d love to see your pitch.

Who can apply?

  • Individuals for up to £2,500
  • Organisations for up to £15,000
  • Maximum pledge 50% of total costs

The work must be legally charitable (though you don’t have to be a charity) and demonstrate crowdfunded support from the community. We will consider projects after you have uploaded all information to the Spacehive platform and started crowdfunding. We'll let you know if we’re pledging within 4 weeks.

We have the following Funds on Spacehive, offering a total of £195000 to relevant projects. To apply, create your project idea and if you're matched, submit us a pitch!
