Magic Little Grants 2021 has launched today and is now live for applications.
Localgiving is working with People’s Postcode Lottery, a grant giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, to offer charitable organisations the opportunity to apply for 2000 grants of £500. The Magic Little Grants Fund provides charitable organisations the opportunity to access funding to deliver a range of projects which fit one or more of the below funding 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
Grants can be used to support the general running costs of new or existing projects. For example, this could include anything from; supporting homeless individuals to find safe accommodation to organising virtual art sessions in your community, or from purchasing sports equipment to running diversity classes. Grants can also be used to cover core business costs. Localgiving and People’s Postcode Lottery aim to be flexible funders and in response to the current coronavirus situation it is important to note: organisations now have longer than 12 months to spend the grant and we do not require specific dates for projects that you would like us to support. We want our funding to be able to be used flexibly and trust that you will deliver projects only when it is safe to do so. Successful organisations will receive an annual membership with Localgiving funded by People’s Postcode Lottery. This membership will give them access to the Localgiving online fundraising platform, regular fundraising competitions and expert fundraising advice. It only takes 15 minutes to apply and you’ll receive funding within six weeks. Apply for a grant here.
