Can we do your charity or not-for-profit organisation a power of good?

Posted on 28 March 2014 06:05 PM by carte1j

I’m looking right now for applicants for the next round of our Power of Giving scheme.  The closing date is 22 April.  We may be able to help you so take a look soon.

There’s £300,000 available every year and we judge applications twice a year.  

You can apply for between £1,000 and £10,000 for projects that address environment and/or social concerns in your area in a way that is sustainable and cost efficient.

In addition to cash, successful applicants also have access to our employees who happily give their time and brains.  I’m new to the business but look forward to rolling up my sleeves soon! 

We launched the scheme in April last year, supporting charities, not-for-profit community, social and education organisations across London, the south east and east of England.  

Sounds great doesn’t it?  But there are, of course, a few rules for applicants.

Our rules

To qualify for the Power of Giving fund, the project should demonstrate how it contributes to the eradication of fuel poverty, promotes energy efficiency, helps in the transition to a low carbon economy, secures a reliable electricity supply, or supports improvements in the environment.

There are other rules that you can check here.  And don’t forget we can only look at applications from our operating regions: London, East of England and the South East.  Check if your project is in this area by typing in the postcode.

Who we’ve granted money to before 

Last year we granted over £100,000 to eleven organisations.  These included financial support for an energy efficient visitor centre for Essex Wildlife Trust, helping vulnerable people in London with energy saving, and an energy efficiency programme in Hove, West Sussex.

Things to remember

We’d love to hear from you so please:
