The Transform Foundation has launched the 2017 funding round of its Charity Website Grant Programme, which will be providing £18,000 grants to charities to fund the redevelopment of their website.
The Transform Foundation is a charity that provides grants and other resources to the charity sector to fund innovative digital projects. The Charity Website Grant Programme forms part of the Foundation’s wider efforts to support the charity sector in effectively making the transition from traditional forms of fundraising and service delivery towards more digitally focused models.
The 2017 funding round follows the successful pilot funding round in 2016 which funded the development of websites that have already gone on to raise hundreds of thousands pounds online for the successful applicants.
The grant is principally aimed at charities with annual incomes between £500,000 and £30 million, although smaller charities with ambitious plans for digital can also apply. Larger charities will also be considered for specific project or fundraising sites.
Any type of non-profit organisation may apply, with successful applicants in the past including causes as diverse as community development, disability, education, theatre, mental health, hospices, national heritage, volunteering, family, children and youth, addiction, homelessness, international aid, and arts.
There is a two-stage application process.
Stage 1 applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
