Projects need to be locally-rooted, tangible, and serve a community purpose.
If you have an idea for a project that can help your local area, then Spacehive is the place to raise funds for it.
It may be something simple and creative such as a street mural, or more ambitious such as repurposing a disused building for community use.
It could also be for temporary projects, for example if the project is in response to COVID-19 and you are looking to purchase equipment to improve local digital services, set up local food production schemes, or fund emergency response packages for mutual aid groups.
What's important is that your project is tangible. People who will back your campaign will want to see where their money has gone.
While it's impossible to cater to all, your project should have local benefit and not just be for a select few to enjoy. Obviously the more people your project appeals to, the more chance you stand of running a successful crowdfunding campaign.
Projects must be in the UK, and can be led by any type of organisation or individual.
