STEP 3 Post launch, they’ll help you understand your impact online through a focus on measurement.

Should you apply

  • Please check our eligibility criteria for the grant and please read our FAQs
  • We are seeking to organisations that are looking to use their website as a marketing platform in order to achieve their charitable objectives, whether they be raising funds, recruiting volunteers, carrying out online petitions or reaching beneficiaries. Therefore, we do not fund organisations who simply want a basic brochure-style website
  • We look to support organisations that are committed to making best use of their new website e.g. through updating content frequently. Therefore, we suggest you only apply if you can commit to someone in your organisation spending at least 2 hours a week managing the website
