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 2,650 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
Organisations must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000. Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.
Please note that schools are eligible to apply if they are a registered charity. Groups in Northern Ireland are not eligible to apply for this funding. Groups may only apply once in 2022 for a grant.
It only takes 15 minutes to apply and if successful, you’ll receive funding within six weeks.
If you’re new to Localgiving and your Magic Little Grant application is successful, alongside the £500 grant you will also be awarded a year of free membership (funded by the the Players of the People’s Postcode Lottery). This means that you will not have to pay the £80 + VAT membership fee, but you will still be required to set up a direct debit upon registration. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application via email, regardless of whether they are successful or not, within two months of their submission.
Make sure to enter the promocode MLG2022 to claim your free annual membership as part of the grant. You need to complete the Localgiving validation process before you are able to submit your application.
