DFID launches new Small Charities Challenge Fund
Grants of up to £50,000 are available for projects of up to two years. The funding aims to support and strengthen the work of small not-for-profit organisations that are registered in the UK and working in specific countries abroad, to help enhance their capacity and efforts to tackle poverty, and towards achieving the Global Goals.
Any small-sized, not-for-profit UK registered organisation with an annual income of £250,000 or less can apply.
The funding is for projects to scale-up and increase the reach and efficiency of their interventions in:
- Any of the lowest 50 countries in the UN Human Development Index (HDI).
- The countries that DFID considers to be of high or moderate fragility.
There is no limit on the number of applications one organisation can make.
Please note that this funding cannot be used for poverty alleviation work or awareness raising activities in the UK.
The fund will remain continually open, and all applications will be reviewed on a six-monthly basis.
