Postcode Dream Fund to Open Shortly
The Dream Fund 2019 will open to applications from charities in Great Britain on 16 July.
Charities in England, Scotland and Wales can apply for funding to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life.
All applications must come from at least two charitable organisations that have joined forces to deliver an innovative project. The lead partner organisation must be a registered charity. The other partners can be registered charities, voluntary groups, community interest companies, universities or other not-for-profit organisations.
The funding pot for 2019 has been set at £3 million.
Grants of between £500,000 and £1 million are available to deliver a project that is 24 months in length between 2019 and 2021.
Projects must address at least one of this year’s priorities, which are:
- Changing lives through early intervention.
- Ending loneliness and social isolation.
- Protecting Britain’s biodiversity.
- Sustainable systems change.
- Transforming society through sport.
Applications must be innovative, creative and original, and present projects that are a genuine ‘dream’.
Stage 1 applications will be accepted from 16 July to 31 August 2018 (5:30pm).
