Why Are They Offering This Grant?

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the existing global trend towards increased digitization and mainstreaming of innovative online collaboration, delivery, and learning technologies – areas in which our sector has traditionally lagged. We firmly believe that enabling this shift is critical, not just for adapting how our sector continues to deliver impact in the short-term in a world of lockdowns and social distancing, but also for ensuring organizations are able to thrive in the medium to long-term, leveraging technology to become more agile, more resilient, and even more impactful.

Funding Details

The Foundation will provide up to 10 grants (one-off) of £7,000 each.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Should be registered organizations working in the youth and civil society sectors on the following themes: media, governance, innovation, entrepreneurship, citizenship, and education/learning.
