Civic Power Fund Now Open to Applications

Civic Power Fund Now Open to Applications

Funding to help harness the power of local communities to create positive societal change.

The Civic Power Fund is the first donor fund dedicated to community organising, which aims to provide targeted long-term funding across the UK.

Its new grants programme is open to non-profit organisations with a turnover of less than £250,000 that are:

  • Rooted in and accountable to their community.
  • Hoping to achieve long-term change on the issues affecting their communities.
  • Addressing injustice by the power of their community. For example, through community organising, campaigning, or democratic engagement.
  • Lacking the resources to take their vision to the next level.
Grants of £2,500 to £20,000 are on offer, with funding to be used to build community resources to take action on issues that matter to them.

Priority will be given to organisations led by people with lived experience of the injustice they are trying to overcome.

All successful applicants will be offered support beyond funding. This will include the Civic Power Fund Governance Hub and optional, bespoke cohortand capacity building opportunities.

To apply, groups must complete a short eligibility questionnaire by 26 February 2023.
