The third round of the Transform Foundation’s 2017 Charity Website Grant Programme is officially open. This will be providing £18,000 grants to charities to fund the redevelopment of their websites in order to:
- Increase their ability to raise funds
- More effectively serve their beneficiaries
- Raise broader awareness of their cause
Previously successful applicants have increased online income by £7.1M and counting, through their new websites.
A successful applicant will typically have an income of between £350k and £30m (although smaller charities with ambitious plans can apply and larger charities can apply for specific campaigns). The £18,000 grant covers the bespoke strategy, design, build, training and launch of a new site and successful applicants must cover ongoing fees for the first year.
Any type of non-profit organisation may apply, with successful applicants in the past including causes as diverse as community development, disability, education, theatre, mental health, hospices, national heritage, volunteering, family, children and youth, addiction, homelessness, international aid, and arts.
The Transform Foundation places paramount importance on sustainable and scalable projects that make a difference to the greatest volume of people. For each grant programme, Transform Foundation works with selected partners in order to to deploy funding in a secure and scalable way and yield comparative and standardised data to see sector trends to amplify our impact. The partner for the Charity Website Grant Programme is Raising IT who will be designing, building and supporting the websites for successful applicants.
