FUNDS

WHAT ARE FUNDS?

Funds help to fuel projects. When you create a project on Spacehive you’re automatically matched with all of the funds that match the same criteria. So a Community Garden project will get matched to a Green Space fund in the same way a playground in Manchester will get matched to our Manchester funds! Get matched, pitch your project and attract additional support from our partners to help bring your project to life. Learn more about pitching for funds here.
