Localgiving launches Magic Little Grants 2019

28th March 2019

 has launched this year’s Magic Little  Fund: its biggest ever, thanks to an award of £550,000 from Postcode Community Trust.

The Magic Little Grants Fund is funded by the People’s Postcode Lottery and offers grants of £500 to local charities and community groups with an annual income under £250,000, that support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise, with the primary aim of improving the physical health of participants.

As well as receiving a grant, first time grantees will receive a free annual membership with Localgiving worth £96, funded by Postcode Community Trust. This will provide access to Localgiving’s online fundraising platform, regular match fund campaigns and competitions, and fundraising resources.

Applicants must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000. Preference will be given to projects that encourage social cohesion and help vulnerable people to overcome barriers to participation in physical activities. Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.

The deadline for applications is midnight on 30 November.
