Expressions of Interest by 14 December 2018
Research by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) shows that people want to be able to give to causes in their local area and see the impact of their donations.
This programme has been launched to support the development of Place-Based Giving Schemes (PBGSs) – partnerships between communities, philanthropists, corporate donors, and local organisations (e.g. businesses, civil society organisations), local authorities, and national funders that bring together resources in a collaborative way to benefit the local community.
The Growing Place-Based Giving Programme will support the development of up to six early-stage PBGSs, helping to guide those schemes towards becoming sustainable and resilient. The aim is to help the chosen schemes to develop the governance structures, fundraising models, strategies, and community engagement plans that will lead to them having a recognisable long-term impact in their area.
The programme will consist of a £600,000 Incubation Fund, with £50,000 available each year to each scheme in financial years 2018/19 and 2019/20 to cover core costs, and a support package consisting of tailored advice and guidance for each scheme delivered by a specialist support organisation.
