Transform Beverley with Spacehive…

Spacehive is a funding platform for projects that make local places better, whether its for residents, locals, businesses, shoppers, tourists or all five! We want to change the way we shape Beverley in the future by helping anyone to create and fund projects online...

Since it launched in 2012, Spacehive has helped 250 projects across the UK access over £6m. Crowdfunding through Spacehive creates a community where one didn’t exist before. It brings people together and raises the profile of projects.

David Bird had this to say at the launch of Beverley Spacehive…

"Spacehive is an exciting opportunity to help residents improve their communities. Over the last decade I have been involved in many meetings where I have heard the phrase ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do this, or do that…’ only for a great idea to be held back through a lack of funding. Destination Beverley has therefore become a partner with Spacehive to encourage and promote Beverley projects."

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our Beverley Spacehive page works by providing the tools that will help people develop their ideas. Then, in order to attract the funding that will make these projects happen, it puts them in front of people, companies, councils, the media and funding organisations. The community in Beverley can then “vote” for and “support” their favourite projects via the Spacehive website. And those with money to fund them can see which projects they want to support by visiting the Beverley Spacehive page.

WHAT NEXT?

For those with an idea…

If you have an idea then go to the Beverley Spacehive page and get it registered and out there.

A member of the public…

Vote for your favourite project, you can even pledge financial support for it. It doesn’t need to be a large sum, crowdfunding gets the rest.

If you are a business or organisation…

Take a look at the projects you could help with and give money to. And at Destination Beverley we may also choose to directly donate to a project.

By all of us coming together we will see these worthwhile ideas from all parts of the community take shape and actually happen! Visit the Beverley Spacehive site and help these great projects succeed...
