On Spacehive you are matched to funds which can pledge to your campaign alongside the rest of the crowd. You can apply by pitching to them directly on Spacehive.
Spacehive partners with Local Authorities, companies and funding bodies across the UK and Ireland who are like-minded in their support of local projects, and want to support their crowdfunding. As part of these partnerships they set up a ‘Fund’ on Spacehive from which they can pledge directly to campaigns once they are live.
Projects are matched to relevant Funds once they have entered basic details including the type of project, the impact area, the type of organisation behind it and location.
Once matched, you can take a look at each Fund’s criteria, objectives, and maximum pledge size. If you think it’s a good match, you can then submit a pitch to it directly through Spacehive.
The pitch itself will ask a set of questions, or request that certain evidence or documentation is provided (e.g. a copy of your constitution or most recent set of accounts). Your answers to these questions and requests will be used in their decision whether to pledge to your project or not. Think of the pitch as your way of putting your hand up to ask for funding. The Project Owner must submit the final filled out version of the pitch. To view the full list of Funds your project could be matched to, have a look at our Fund directory.
