Funding: Martin Lewis personal charity – grants for specific coronavirus related poverty relief projects

From Martin Lewis Money Saving Expert website:

To try and help I’m going to release £1,000,000 from my personal charity fund to provide grants of £5,000 to £20,000 to small registered charities, or local arms of bigger charities, across the UK – to help with specific UK coronavirus-related poverty relief projects.

Examples could include foodbanks, charities engaged in community aid, financial advice help and more. My hope is to get the money distributed within the next couple of weeks, and I’m looking for projects that are up and running, or are in the process of being set up – as we want to deliver help at speed.

If you are an appropriate official of a registered charity then we’ve arranged a simple

coronavirus poverty relief grant application form 

As this is all about speedy delivery APPLICATIONS CLOSE AT 11.59pm ON WED 25 MAR 2020 – I’ll extend it in the unlikely event we don’t get enough applications. If you’ve questions about the charity grant applications, contact Archna/Jonathan, but please keep them short and sweet – we want to keep this a nimble process.
