FUNDING: Ecclesiastical’s ‘Movement for Good’ £1m Giving Programme Open for Entries

Movement for Good awards

https://www.ecclesiastical.com/movement-for-good/

Charitable giving is at the heart of what we do – and has been for over 130 years. Today, we’re the only financial services group that exists to give its profits to charity. We’re proud to be doing things differently. To be giving back to the communities we serve and championing the issues that really matter to them – working together to build a movement for good.

Through our Movement for Good awards, we’re giving £1m to charities. We want to put our giving directly into the hands of remarkable organisations (like yours perhaps) that are changing people’s lives for the better.

Our £1,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland – these could range from smaller volunteer-run groups to larger, well-known organisations. Our £50,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland with an income of less than £5m, which support a cause that we know our communities care about. Please read our full terms and conditions, to see whether your charity is eligible to apply.

Our £1m giving programme has two funding categories:

  • £1,000 donations to 500 charities
  • £50,000 grants to 10 charities
We know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference. We also know the importance of longer-term funding for charities, especially when trying to bring ambitious new ideas to life. Through our £50,000 awards, we’re actively championing innovation, giving charities the backing they need to propel their plans forward.
By splitting the awards into two categories, we are allocating the funds in a way that charities tell us will have the greatest impact.
Remember – charities can be nominated for the £1,000 donations and apply for the £50,000 grants.
