Magic Little Grants Fund

Magic Little Grants Fund

In 2022, the Trust is increasing the funding pot to £1.325 million and expects to award grants of £500 to 2,650 charitable organisations. Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work. This year's funding aims to support projects that address the following themes:

  • Improving mental wellbeing
  • Enabling community participation in the arts
  • Preventing or reducing the impact of poverty
  • Supporting marginalised groups and promoting equality
  • Improving biodiversity and green spaces
  • Enabling participation in physical activity
  • Responding to the climate emergency and promoting sustainability
  • Increasing community access to outdoor space.

Organisations that receive a grant will also be awarded a year of free membership (funded by the player’s of the People’s Postcode Lottery). This means that the grant recipient will not have to pay the £80 + VAT membership fee, although they will still be required to set up a direct debit upon registration.

The application window normally runs from early March until the end of October.

The application window runs from 16 March 2022 to midnight on 31 October 2022.
