£1 million Coronavirus Charity Help Fund has been set up by MoneySavingExpert’s Martin Lewis personal charity fund to help those affected by the coronavirus.
My thanks to Heather Kidd for this post.
With the emerging Coronavirus across the country we are all aware of the impacts this is having on the community and economy, and I know that many of our local charities and voluntary groups are already working on ways in which they can support the local community.
To help support charities during this time a new small grant scheme has been launched which might be of interest to any charities working in your community. Details of the grants and how to apply are listed below.
Short Deadline for Urgent Small Charity Coronavirus Poverty Relief Applications (UK)
The £1 million Coronavirus Charity Help Fund has been set up by MoneySavingExpert’s Martin Lewis personal charity fund to help those affected by the coronavirus.
Small registered charities, or local arms of bigger charities can apply now for a grant of between £5,000 and £20,000 for specific coronavirus poverty relief projects in the UK.
Examples could include foodbanks, charities engaged in community aid, financial advice help and more. The hope is to get the money distributed within the next couple of weeks, and thus the focus is on supporting projects that are up and running or are in the process of being set up.
Please note the funding is only for specific coronavirus projects. Full details can be found on the link below.
