Postcode Dream Trust Extends Deadline for Dream Fund Applications
The Postcode Dream Trust has extended the application deadline to 25 September 2016 giving charities in Great Britain another 10 days to apply to the Dream Fund.
The Dream Fund was created to give British charities the chance to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life.
In order to apply, at least two organisations must have joined forces to deliver an innovative project. The lead organisation must be a registered charity. The other partners can be charities, voluntary groups, community interest companies, universities or other not-for-profit organisations.
The funding pot for 2017 is £2.5 million. There will be two or three awards in total.
Grants of between £500,000 and £1 million are available to deliver a project in 2017-2019.
Funding is available for projects that meet one of the following themes:
- Early child development.
- Helping refugees in our community.
- Conserving our marine environment.
- Reconnecting with the natural world.
- Engaging people with arts, culture and heritage.
Applications must be innovative, creative and original, and present projects that are a genuine ‘dream’.
The deadline for applications has been extended from 15 September to 25 September 2016 (5.30pm).
