Crowdfund Barnet – new funding round

Barnet Council has already pledged over £12,500 to six crowdfunding ideas this summer. Projects vary from renovating the outdoor space at a community centre, to holding a medieval festival to celebrate the 550th anniversary of the Battle of Barnet, and creating a wildlife wonderland.

The projects are all part of Crowdfund Barnet, a programme run in partnership between Barnet Council and the crowdfunding platform Spacehive. As part of this initiative, local residents and groups with an idea to improve their community have the opportunity to gain funding via Spacehive’s crowdfunding platform. The council has committed a total of £40,000 to the programme, with pledges up to £5,000 available per project.

Anybody can get behind the projects, with pledges starting at £2. If you want to support the projects alongside the council, visit Crowdfund Barnet
