FUNDING: Magic Little Grants – sports/exercise, apply by 31st October 2020

Magic Little Grants 2020

Together with Postcode Community Trust, a grant giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, Localgiving is delighted to offer charitable organisations the opportunity to apply for grants of £500.

The fund will be awarding over 900 grants to community projects across Great Britain. Successful projects will support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise with the primary aim of improving the physical health of participants.

Applications will receive a decision on their application and, if successful, the funding within two months of submitting a complete application. The deadline for applications will be 31st October 2020.

Important Coronavirus Update

  1. 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.
  2. We are happy to support projects that support people to stay active during social distancing, such as online fitness classes delivered via video conferencing software or Youtube.

Not a Localgiving member?

Organisations who are not members of Localgiving, will also benefit from an annual membership, funded by Postcode Community Trust, that will provide them with access to Localgiving’s suite of online fundraising tools.
