Funding Station locations at a glance
Funding Stations can be found at almost all named locations on the Fortnite map - the map below shows their locations at a glance.
Once you’ve landed at one of the locations circled on the map above, you’ll want to look out for a particular icon on your minimap. It looks like a small bag of money, and will appear once you are within a certain range of the Funding Station. You can see this in the image below.
When Funding Stations are live, you will be able to approach them and interact to trigger the vote. You will then need to spend the required Gold Bars to cast your vote. There are always two options, ranging from vehicles to weapons and consumables.
