Online fundraising platform Localgiving, together with the Postcode Community Trust have announced that this year’s Magic Little Grants programme will re-open for applications on the 1st March until the 31st October. Small charities and community groups can apply for grants of up to £500 to launch or strengthen their services.
To be eligible applicant organisations will need to have an annual income of below £250,000 or be in their first year of operation.
As well as receiving a Magic Little Grant, successful organisations that are new to Localgiving will also be given a free annual membership with Localgiving worth £96. This membership gives them access to all of Localgiving’s wider online fundraising services, such as regular fundraising campaigns and training.
Previous projects funded include:
Flamingo Chicks, who received a grant to provide sensory kits for disabled children to attend dance classes.
Featherstone Rovers Foundation, who received a grant to deliver a range of activities to encourage more young people to try Rugby League.
