People’s Postcode Lottery funds, upcoming deadlines

Three grant schemes that receive funding via the People’s Postcode Lottery open for stage 1 applications this week. The deadline, who they fund and how much they fund is the same for all three, but the kind of projects they want to fund are different for each scheme.  You have just two weeks, until 28 February, to submit a short expression of interest.

All three trusts fund new projects, or significant expansions of existing projects, in Great Britain.  They are open to constituted voluntary and community organisations, registered charities, charitable incorporated organisations (CIOs), community interest companies (CICs) or not-for-profit companies

Deadline: 28 February 2018, for stage 1 expressions of interest

How much: registered charities and CIOs can apply for up to £20,000, other not-for-profit organisations can apply for up to £2,000
