Magic Little Grants 2022

After successfully distributing 2,000 grants to Localgiving members last year, it was our biggest ever Magic Little Grants programme, we’re incredibly excited to announce that 2022 is going to be even bigger and better than ever before! We will be awarding £500 grants to 2,650 charitable organisations on Localgiving. We are so pleased to have expanded the number of grantees this year as we know how popular these grants have proven to our charities. We would like to extend a huge thank you to the support and contributions from the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Let’s Create Jubilee Fund – UK Community Foundations

UKCF is working with Arts Council England to distribute a new fund which will enable communities to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee through culture and creativity.

The Let’s Create Jubilee Fund is a £5 million programme that will support community and voluntary organisations in England to develop creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.

The programme is made possible with funding from the National Lottery.  UKCF will be managing the fund’s distribution on behalf of their community foundation members across England.

Applicants will be able to apply for grants of up to £10,000 and are encouraged to partner with established artists, creatives and cultural organisations to develop their activities. They want to ensure that “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations give people throughout England the chance to experience the best of the country’s culture, while also celebrating an important milestone in our national history.”

The Fund is now open, and all applications will need to be made through local community foundations.
