Add fundraising and volunteer firepower to your project!

Like to add bit of fuel to your funding campaign? Need some volunteers to help make your project happen? We can help!

We’ve teamed up with the UK’s biggest business-led charity, Business in the Community (BITC), to match Spacehive projects with some of Britain’s biggest companies, bringing you armies of volunteers and the opportunity to attract pledges of funding for your campaign.

Every May 17th, some of the UK’s largest companies dispatch teams of employees into the community where they help with local civic projects, giving something back to the communities that support them. This annual day of volunteering is called Give & Gain Day and it’s the largest event of its kind in Britain.

This year Give & Gain Day is offering communities the opportunity not just to benefit from volunteer elbow grease but to fund a wider project using Spacehive. So rather than just clean graffitti from a playground in a day, you could crowdfund some shiny new swings and a roundabout.

The idea is that the companies matched with projects will be inspired to pledge funding contributions as well as volunteer.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to build a relationship with a top business that will hopefully last well beyond the 17th May.

If you’re interested in taking advantage of this opportunity email us at to find out more – but be quick, places are going fast!
