Applications for Ecclesiastical's £50,000 Award Now Open

Posted on 28 Jun 2019

Charitable giving is at the heart of what Ecclesiastical does – and has been for over 130 years.

Ecclesiastical is the only financial services group that exists to give its profits to charity. Ecclesiastical is proud to be doing things differently. To be giving back to the communities it serves and champion the issues that really matter to them – working together to build a movement for good.

Movement for Good awards

Through Ecclesiastical's Movement for Good awards, £1m is being given away to charities. We want to put our giving directly into the hands of remarkable organisations (like yours perhaps) that are changing people’s lives for the better.  

Our £1m giving programme has two funding categories - £1,000 donations to 500 charities (now closed) and £50,000 grants to 10 charities. By splitting the awards into two categories, Ecclesiastical is allocating the funds in a way that charities tell us will have the greatest impact.

The £50,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland with an income of less than £5m, which support a cause that we know our communities care about: the advancement of education and skills; citizenship or community development; arts, culture or heritage.

The deadline for applications is Friday, 26 July 2019.
