Spacehive is the world's first funding platform for neighbourhood improvement projects. We make it as easy to fund a new park or playground for your area as buying a book online.
For people with inspiring project ideas, Spacehive allows you to pitch for support and funding from your community. For everyone else it's a refreshingly easy way to transform where you live: just find a project you like and pledge funding. If it gets funded, it gets built!
