Local charities and community groups can apply from 10 March for a Magic Little Grant of £500 for community projects that support and inspire people to participate in physical activity.
Localgiving, the online fundraising platform, and the Postcode Community Trust are working together again in 2020 to provide more 900 small grants to small local charities and community groups in England, Scotland and Wales.
The aim of the fund is to support the work of organisations that are engaging hard to reach individuals, encouraging them to take part in sports or exercise with the primary aim of improving the health of participants.
The funding can be used to support the general running costs of new and existing sports and physical activities. For example, this could include facilities hire, kit and equipment, coaching qualifications, or other volunteer expenses etc.
In addition, organisations that are new to Localgiving will receive a Localgiving membership, funded by Postcode Community Trust, that will provide them with access to Localgiving’s suite of online fundraising tools.
Only organisations with an annual income under £250,000 or that are in their first year of operation can apply.
Applications for 2020 funding will be accepted from 10 March 2020 until 31 October 2020.
