The Matrix Causes Fund (MCF) aims provide support to access to justice (particularly for people trying to get support to meet their basic personal needs), or promote equality of opportunity, or promote a sustainable environment.

Applications are particularly welcome from organisations whose focus is on supporting the needs of vulnerable persons such as prisoners, asylum seekers, people with mental health difficulties, people (particularly children) with disabilities, or women in refuges.

The MCF:
a) may be able to consider applications from organisations that are not registered as a charity in the UK;
b) will only provide funds for identifiable items or activities (potentially including the staff costs of the activity);
c) will fund the costs associated with publications, staff/volunteer training, publicity, events and equipment which can benefit many people and be longlasting;
d) will provide one-off funds of up to £5,000, or funds of up to £3,000/year for 3 years.

Utilize This Offer

If you have a project with which you would like financial assistance, please check carefully the full criteria.
Next application deadline: 9 Oct 2019 by 17.00.
Any applications received after this date will be put forward to the next quarterly meeting.

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests; yes, tell these storiies too... - they will enlighten and inspire your network.
