Fund details & criteria

Fund purpose

The Culture Mile BID - a district in the Square Mile brimming with cultural creativity, commercial vibrancy and a strong sense of community - is delighted to launch its second community fund with ActionFunder. Through this community fund, we seek to support a breadth of local projects that drive positive social and environmental impact in the local community. The Fund is managed by the Environmental, Social and Governance Steering group of the BID and applications are welcomed from any projects that will clearly benefit those who live or work in the Culture Mile BID area. For this specific fund, if multiple non-profits want to join together to put in a joint application for funding, they can. Use one non-profit account and clearly signpost the additional non-profit(s). The fund cannot fund projects that are political or religious or lobbying in nature and organisations cannot be awarded two awards in one grant cycle but grantees from previous years can apply again. Note: only ONE application per non-profit can be made to this fund. The funder is meeting in early June to review applications. Applicants should expect to be updated soon after. ------ Applying for funding on ActionFunder is a bit different. Here’s the process: sign up, register your organisation and post a project you want funding for. Your project will automatically match with any funds you meet the criteria for. If you want to apply for this fund, make sure your project has the right criteria. Your project will remain live on the platform (ready to match with new funds) until you successfully win funding. ActionFunder’s all about saving you time so that you can get on with what matters: community action.
