MGF’s Grants for Good Fund – United Kingdom

MGF’s Grants for Good Fund – United Kingdom

Deadline: 15-Jun-21

The Matthew Good Foundation has launched a Grants for Good Fund to support small charities, community projects and social entrepreneurs who are passionate about making a difference to people, their community, or the environment.

Since 2011, the Matthew Good Foundation has empowered employees of the John Good Group to support many good causes in the UK and around the world by nominating good causes for funding. However, in 2021, their tenth year, they wanted to extend their impact and allow small charities, community projects and social entrepreneurs to come straight to them.

Every three months, they’ll share £10,000 between 5 shortlisted projects that have a positive impact on communities, people or the environment.
To stay true to their ethos of donating funds to causes close to the hearts of their members, every three months, five shortlisted projects will be voted for by John Good Group employees. These five charities will all receive a share of £10,000 – the more votes a cause receives, the bigger the donation. Following the vote, the project that receives the most votes will receive a grant of £3,500, second place £2,500, third place £2,000 and fourth and fifth place will both receive £1,000.
Eligibility Criteria

Your application must be on behalf of a local community group, charity, voluntary group or social enterprise that has a positive impact on communities, people or the environment and has an average income of less than £50,000 in the last 12 months.
They want to make it easy for very small charities or new community interest companies to apply, so organisations/groups do not need to be a registered charity, however, you will need to have a bank account in your organisation’s/project’s name such as a community bank account. They are not able to provide funding to personal bank accounts.
They actively encourage applications from UK registered charities that operate overseas.
Assessment Criteria

Once you submit your application, it will be assessed by their team. The team will look to understand from your application if it meets their requirements and demonstrates the positive impact it will have on communities, people or the environment. All grant applications are made subject to a review of the organisation’s/project’s reputation and activities, and they may be in touch if they require further information to assess your application.
If your application is shortlisted they’ll be in touch to let you know the good news.
Details of all the finalists will be shared with John Good Group employees who will show their support by voting for them online.
Once the vote is confirmed, they’ll be in touch to tell you how much funding your organisation/group will receive. They aim to let you know the outcome of your application within 12 weeks.
