Space 2 Grow#4 was the second Micro Fund, an opportunity for members to apply for up to £250 in a quick and simple way, to meet the needs or organisations for equipment or event that other funding may not always allow. 


Developed on the back of feedback received from Space2Grow#2 the fund was reduced from £500 to £250 with the application period opened to cover a much longer period of time, allowing members to apply when they came across a need. 

Changes to the application process meant the removal of an independent funding panel.  The grants officer would ensure minimum requirements are met and awards were signed off by a trustee.
