If you are a charitable organisation in your first year of operation, or with an annual income of less than £250,000, you could benefit from one of the 2,650 grants of £500 up for grabs via Local Giving's Magic Little Grants 2022 programme.
Working with the People's Postcode Lottery, Local Giving is offering charitable organisations the chance to apply for funding that can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.
The funding provides the opportunity for charities to develop projects around any of the following themes:
Improving mental wellbeing
Enabling community participation in the arts
Preventing or reducing the impact of poverty
Supporting marginalised groups and promoting equality
Improving biodiversity and green spaces
Enabling participation in physical activity
Responding to the climate emergency and promoting sustainability
Increasing community access to outdoor space
Schools that are registered as charities are able to apply, and applications can only be made once for the 2022 grant by any one group.
If you have been awarded a Magic Little Grant in previous years, you will need to have completed and returned your monitoring forms for those years before you can receive another grant.
It only takes 15 minutes to apply and if successful, you’ll receive funding within six weeks.
