Your opportunity to get match funding for your work and fundraising efforts!
About this event
Are you tackling poverty and inequality in outer London?
Are you a charity, social enterprise or community group which has a project that provides practical solutions to support people on low incomes? Does it address local issues in creative ways? Is it led by the communities that will benefit from the work?
We, at Small Charities Coalition, are working with Crowdfunder and Trust for London to get funding to organisations based in ten boroughs in outer London to do exactly this. If you meet the requirements, you could receive match funding of up to £10,000.
The Crowdfunder platform allows anyone to be able to set up a fundraising project. However, their partnership with Trust for London, means that charitable organisations who meet their criteria can apply to the Local Action Poverty Fund and their match funding pot!
So, who can apply for the fund?
Projects will be raising funds to undertake charitable work that:
● Provides practical solutions to support people on low incomes
● Addresses local problems in creative ways
● Is led by the communities that will benefit from the work
Eligible organisations are:
● Located and working in outer London (including Hounslow and Ealing)
● Undertaking charitable work to tackle poverty and inequality
● Actively involving people in their communities in the delivery of their work
● Raising funds from a minimum of 25 individuals.
● Having annual income of under £100,000
To make sure your project goes to plan, you’ll have the support for Small Charities Coalition. We have partnered with Crowdfunder and Trust for London to provide eligible and interested organisations with the tools to create and deliver successful campaigns. Our support, advice and assistance will be delivered to you through a series of online sessions (and hopefully face-to-face in the future). You’ll learn how make use of the media and stand out from the crowd. You don’t have to be an SCC member, just someone who meets the criteria.
