Funding for Charity Websites

In Funding News by Caroline Foxton

Charity Website Grant Programme .

  • Funding of up to £18,000 to cover the strategy, design, build, content strategy, training, QA and launch of a new mobile optimised website, with sophisticated marketing, fundraising, appeals, social media, e-commerce and website management tools
  • Applications are accepted on a rolling basis
  • The grant covers 100% of the website design and build costs with our current grant partner. Your organisation will need to cover ongoing costs for a minimum of a 12 month commitment

The grant is principally aimed at charities with annual incomes between £350k and £30m, 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 & youth, addiction, homelessness, international aid, and arts.

One last thing! The Charity Website Grant Programme is just one of many programmes the Transform Foundation is running this year.

Other projects include the Facebook Advertising Grant, which provides £5k grants to charities to fund Facebook Advertising campaigns, and the Digital Skills Timebank that co-ordinates corporate volunteer time and matches it to digital projects for charities. The Transform Foundation is also running a programme of educational events and white papers to share digital best practice in the charity sector. These programmes form part of its wider efforts to help the charity sector transition from traditional forms of fundraising and service delivery towards more digitally focused models.
