Three-year funding opportunity now open: environmental and health charities

The Funding Network (TFN), through its network of corporate members and crowdfunding event sponsors, is often able to find and connect underfunded non-profits with new funding opportunities. One such opportunity is detailed below.

Octopus Giving, the charitable foundation of the Octopus Group, has been a TFN corporate member for over 4 years and an engaged sponsor of charitable projects at our live crowdfunding events.

This spring, they are looking for two new charities to join them for a three-year charity partnership. They are particularly looking to partner with small but ambitious a) environmental charities tackling the climate emergency by reducing waste, saving energy or decreasing emissions and b) health charities taking a unique approach to improving physical or mental wellbeing. 

The ideal charity will have:

  • The environment or health/mental health as a core part of their mission
  • A UK registered charity number
  • Annual turnover between £500,000 and £1.5 million
  • A range of individual and team volunteering opportunities for Octopus staff

The benefits:

  • £45,000 of unrestricted funding
  • Octopus staff fundraisers
  • Significant time and skill investment from Octopus staff, including IT, finance and HR expertise
  • A dedicated Giving Team to help make the most of the partnership
  • Networking opportunities with other funded charities

If you know of any charities in your network that might fit the bill, charity partner applications are open on the Octopus Giving website until the 14th May 2021. Contact giving@octopusgroup.com to find out more.
