How much and what can you apply for

Phoenix Fund grant winners will receive flexible, core funding of up to £20,000 to meet critical needs and continue their organisations’ missions. These grants aim to more effectively support local groups with limited access to resources, which are often restricted to specific interventions. Making a grant flexible allows an organisation to make its own decisions about what is most important for its operations and programmes.

How to apply

You have to create an account on the website and then fill in the online application form.
