Does your project meet the eligibility criteria?
The project needs to demonstrate tangible impact on plastic pollution. This could be a direct and immediate impact or a clear path to future impact.
We want to see that the project will have a longer term impact beyond the scope of the funded year, and ideally it would have wider social and environmental benefits too.
We want to fund a discrete project, or specific project activity rather than contribute towards an organisation’s core costs.
We want to know what’s different about this project, the people and the organisation(s) delivering it.
How will you share the learnings, outputs and results to inspire and enable others to learn from and amplify your project (and thereby increase the impact).
The grant fund is open to the following types of organisation. Collaboration is encouraged and partnership applications are welcome. The monies will need to be paid to the lead applicant which must be a UK registered body, and one of the following:
Community interest company
Social enterprise* (as defined below)
*The fund is open to social enterprises that have a clear charitable mission, that can demonstrate the positive difference they’re trying to make and which reinvest profits to further their social mission, and/or which, in a ‘wind-up’ situation, pass remaining assets on to another non-profit social enterprise that has a charitable purpose.
Please see the fund’s Terms and Conditions for full details.
