New funding for small international development charities

Small UK not-for-profit organisations working on international development projects can now apply for a grant through the latest round of funding from the Department for International Development’s Small Charities Challenge Fund (SCCF).

The SCCF is offering Project Grants of up to £50,000 to organisations with an annual income of less than £250,000, to help fund projects of up to two years in duration, aimed at tackling one or more of the 17 Global Goals. These are projects aimed at improving the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable, tackling challenges such as hunger, poverty, health, education and gender equality.

SCCF is also putting up Capacity Development Grants of up to £100,000 for larger organisations with the ability to build the capacity of small British charities working in international development. It is looking for innovative, evidence-based and ambitious proposals from organisations with a track record of supporting small, grassroots organisations.

The deadline for the next review of applications for both grants is 28 November 2019.
