Online fundraising platform Localgiving, together with the Postcode Community Trust have announced that this year’s Magic Little Grants programme is now open for applications. Small charities and community groups can apply for grants of up to £500 to support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise.
To be eligible applicant organisations will need to have an annual income of below £250,000 or be in their first year of operation. A total of 900 grants will be available.
Localgiving members will be able to complete the 10-minute application process via their charity account on the Localgiving website.
Organisations who are not members of Localgiving will also benefit from an annual membership funded by Postcode Community Trust, which will provide them with access to Localgiving’s suite of online fundraising tools.
Applications can be submitted at any time until the 31st October 2020.
