The Transform Foundation’s Charity Website Grant Programme will be providing £18,000 worth of grants to charities to fund the redevelopment of their website in order to increase their ability to raise funds, more effectively serve beneficiaries and raise broader awareness of their cause.
The Transform Foundation is a charity that provides grants and other resources to the charity sector to fund innovative digital projects. The Charity Website Grant Programme is one of many programmes they are running this year. Other projects include their Facebook Advertising Grant, which is providing £5k grants to charities to fund Facebook Advertising campaigns and their Digital Skills Timebank which is co-ordinating corporate volunteer time and matching it to digital projects for charities.
They are also running a programme of educational events and white papers to share digital best practice in the charity sector. These programmes form part of their wider efforts to support the charity sector in effectively making the transition from traditional forms of fundraising and service delivery towards more digitally focused models.
The 2017 Website Grant funding round follows the successful pilot funding round in 2016 which funded the development of websites that have already gone on to raise over £1.3m online for the successful applicants. The grant is principally aimed at charities with annual incomes between £350k and £30m, although smaller charities with ambitious plans for digital can also apply. Larger charities will also be considered for specific project or fundraising sites.
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 & youth, addiction, homelessness, international aid, and arts.
