Small Grants for Projects that Encourage People to be Physically Active

Magic Little Grants 2019 is now live! This fund gives local charities and community groups the chance to apply for a £500 grant to deliver projects that encourage people to be physically active. Successful projects will support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise with the primary aim of improving the physical health of participants.

With its simple 10-minute application process, the Magic Little Grants fund reduces the work required for local organisations to access the funding they need to launch or strengthen their services.

  • Applicants must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000. Preference will be given to projects that encourage social cohesion and help vulnerable people to overcome barriers to participation in physical activities.
  • Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.
  • The deadline for applications for Magic Little Grants 2019 is midnight on 30th November 2019.

As well as receiving a Magic Little Grant, successful organisations that are new to Localgiving will also be given a free annual membership with Localgiving worth £96.This membership gives them access to all of Localgiving's wider online fundraising services, such as regular fundraising campaigns and training.

N.B. Groups who have previously been awarded a Magic Little Grant may apply for the £500 again but cannot get a second sponsored membership. If your application for a grant is unsuccessful, you will be asked whether you would like to be a member of Local Giving at a cost of £96.
