Deutsche Bank Small Grants Fund 2015 opens for applications

Applications for the Deutsche Bank Small Grants Fund (DBSGF) open today. The DBSGF supports grass roots organisations which work with young people (aged 11-18), specifically with a focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) for the first time this year. Charities must have an annual income of less than £250,000 and grants of up to £5,000 are available. The deadline for applications is July 17.

Grants are often the only source of financial support grassroots organisations can access. These small groups provide an invaluable service within their communities, understanding local requirements as they work so closely with the communities they serve. Small organisations can be overlooked for corporate funding and so these grants can provide a life line to their local work.

With STEM skills in demand as the economy becomes more knowledge-based and technology driven, attainment in STEM subjects provides opportunities for young people. According to a recent report from the Campaign for Science and Engineering, the UK economy has a shortfall of 40,000 STEM skilled workers every year. This is one of the reasons why Deutsche Bank is also supporting the government’s Your Life campaign to encourage more young people in STEM.
