|Lloyds Bank Foundation are delighted to announce that funding for 2021 is now open and will stay open for the rest of the year.|
Small and local charities with a yearly income of £25,000 to £1 million who are helping people experiencing complex social issues can now apply for a two-year unrestricted grant of £50,000.
Alongside unrestricted funding, successful charities will be supported by one of the Foundation’s regional managers, who will work with them to access a wide range of organisational development support to help meet identified needs.
Applications for funding will remain open throughout the year. To check your eligibility and apply, visit the website.
|To ensure this funding is distributed equitably, at least 25% of the £9.5 million awarded in grants this year will be ringfenced for Black, Asian and minority ethnic led charities. In the coming months, they will also be launching the Racial Equity funding stream for charities that are led by and for members of minoritised communities. If you’d like to find out when the Racial Equity strand opens, sign up here.|
On Tuesday 30 March, 14:00, they will be holding a live Q&A panel with their grants team to talk through the eligibility criteria for our funding, the details of the grants and more. They will also be on hand to answer any questions about this funding. You can find their full eligibility guidance here.
