We are now open for our second funding round of the year! We will be giving up to £40,000 to around 30 grass-roots groups, campaigning for effective social change. We will be accepting applications until Monday 16th September.
How to apply
To apply for a grant of up to £3,000 you need to fill in a relatively short application form. You can find all the details here and apply here. Make sure you have read our funding criteria and values, to see if you are eligible. If you need any support or assistance please get in touch!
The funding process is democratic and participatory, and involves people directly affected by the issues you are campaigning on. We hope this makes the process fair and accountable to applicants and out members. Please check out this page for a little more information about our funding process works.
The deadline for applications is midnight on 16th September.
You will find out if you are short-listed toward the end of November, and grants will paid out from the end of January.
This funding round has been made possible by an action inquiry with Lankelly Chase Foundation, who will be learning about Edge Fund's participatory grant making methods during this funding round.
We need your support!
We can only open for applications when we have raised enough money for a funding round. We welcome donations large and small, and particularly small monthly donations of £5 or £10 as they help us plan for the future. Please donate if you can, so we can keep supporting those taking action for a just and equal world.
Help us get the word out! Follow us on twitter or sign up for our email list here. Please help us reach people and groups who don’t normally hear about funding opportunities – share this post or via social media and email but don’t forget to also tell people at meetings, events etc, especially if you know they are not often online. We have leaflets and cards we can send to anyone who can help distribute them to people and groups who might be interested in applying. Get in touch if you can help. Thank you!
