Magic Little Grants
Localgiving has just announced that they will be providing grants of £500 to small charities and community groups, with over 400 grants available (funded by Postcode Community Trust). They are inviting applications from now to 31st October 2018.
The Magic Little Grants Fund provides local charities and community groups with the opportunity to access funding to deliver engaging physical activities, which help to overcome barriers to participation.
As part of the grant, non Localgiving members will also be awarded 12 months membership to support them with fundraising online throughout the year. This means groups with an income of below £50,000 a year can sign up to Localgiving for free! Priority is given to groups with an annual income of below £20,000. It is a very short and simple grant application and we really encourage you to give it a go!
To benefit from funding, projects need to either overcome ‘barriers to participation in physical activities in creative ways’ or ‘increase social cohesion through developing access to sports and other recreational activities’. You can find full information about signing up to Localgiving and applying for the grant here: localgiving.org/magic-little-grants
For those groups who have a higher income, Localgiving is offering 25% off membership, £200 match funding, gift aid for all groups and free training. This offer is only available for a limited time and you just need to sign up here and enter the promo code WALES72 at the payment section. A e-flyer is attached but please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
