Small Charities Challenge Fund reopens!

Small Charities Challenge Fund reopens!

The Department for International Development (DFID) has reopened the Small Charities Challenge Fund, with two types of grant available to UK based organisations working in international development.

This round, there is a new, one-off grant available to help build the capacity of small British charities working in international development. The capacity development grant will make up to £100,000 available to six grantees and can be spent over two years. The capacity development grant is available to UK registered charities with an annual turnover of under £10 million.

Fund manager Mannion Daniels will be holding a guidance webinar about the new capacity development grant on Wednesday 11 September at 11:00 am (BST) for potential applicants.

The Small Charities Challenge Fund project grants will continue to make up to £50,000 available to charities with an income of £250,000 or less. Updated guidance about the application process and what it involves is available on the UK Aid Direct website.

Alliance members who have successfully obtained Small Charites Challenge project funding include Cerebral Palsy Africa and Waste Aid. We previously held a webinar with fund manager Mannion Daniels and DFID about the project grants in February 2019, which you can re-watch on the previous events section of our website.

The deadline for both types of grant is Thursday 28 November 2019 at 17:00 GMT. Good luck!
