The Transform Foundation provides grants for charities and not for profit organisations operating for the public good to develop an effective social media and web presence with the aim of developing future funding streams.
The Foundation has two funding programmes:
- A Facebook Grant programme (which provides £5,000 of funding to spend on Facebook advertising, with potential scale-up funding of up to £10,000)
- A Website Grant Programme (which provides a funding package of up to £18,000 to cover the upfront costs of a new charity-specific website including strategy, design, development and training).
The Transform Foundation specifically target mid-sized organisations with a turnover of £350,000 – £30 million; or those organisations that have the internal resources to follow-up the Transform Foundation grant with internal investments.
There is a two stage application process. Stage 1 is a simple online form to check eligibility criteria and that the applicant has a clear, measurable plan for deploying the funding to generate income or impact. Stage 2 consists of a face to face or online meeting with the Foundation or their partners. Decisions are usually made within 21 days of the stage 2 meeting.
Applications for Stage 1 applications can be made at any time.
