Thirty grass root charities benefit from latest round of Deutsche Bank Small Grants fund awards

Last week, thirty small charities were told the good news that they had been successful in their application for funding from the Deutsche Bank Small Grants Fund. The fund is part of Born to Be,  and is focussed on providing funding for local initiatives to support young people.

 

Grant recipients included:

-         - WORLDwrite, a project based in Hackney, London which funds intensive six week TV production training packages to 16-18 year olds from minority and economically deprived backgrounds.

-         - Sport4Life,  which delivers ‘Be Positive’, a programme of activities for 100 young people in Birmingham including sport coaching, street dance, workshops and educational sessions on issues such as crime, drugs and alcohol. It also allows young people to access formal and informal qualifications.

 

These grass-roots projects play a vital role in supporting local communities as they are often best situated to react to emerging local needs. They are also able to reach the most marginalised individuals in a way that larger charities sometimes struggle to. However, these small organisations are often overlooked for corporate funding and with one in ten small charities in London fearing closure over the next 12 months due to a 14% decrease in donations, support is increasingly important.

Following the success of Donate I.T the London and Birmingham panel included representatives from Group Technology. Donate I.T, a campaign which allows employees to donate redundant personal and office technology, joined forces with Born to Be in the UK and donated the funds raised to the Deutsche Bank Small Grants Fund.

Since 2006 the Deutsche Bank Small Grants Fund has provided over £880,000 of funding.
