Learn how to raise funds to improve your community with Camden Hive

Do have an idea that will make Camden even better? Would you like to create a new project or revive an existing space? Want to learn how to bring your ideas to life?

On the evening of Tuesday 10 March, we are holding a practical workshop for residents who want to learn how to run a fundraising campaign using the Camden Hive website.

At the workshop, we'll show you how to add your project to the Camden Hive and share handy tips that will help you reach a bigger crowd and get your idea funded.

The civic crowdfunding website, Camden Hive, brings together inspiring projects by people who live, work or play in Camden. Go Pinnacle is one of the projects currently raising funds to restore the pinnacle on the Grade 1 listed St Martin's Church, in Gospel Oak. While The Alchemists of Camden aim to build a mushroom farm in a former basement car park.

How does the site work?

  • Eligible projects need to be in Camden, fully costed and open to the public.
  • Projects are loaded on to the site with a brief explanation of what they want to achieve, photos and videos.
  • The fundraising target is set with a date by which it needs to be reached. A fundraising ‘totaliser’ shows what money has been pledged and the time left to raise funds.
  • Crowd funders are encouraged to use their social networks, social media, email and the press to promote their project, and encourage support.

The workshop will take place from 6 to 8pm on 10 March, at 5 Pancras Square. Places must be booked in advance. Contact nick.wilson-young@camden.gov.uk, or call 0207 974 2762.
