Comic Relief has launched a new Tech For Good programme that will support charities using digital technology to create social change by delivering new ideas or more effective services.
This programme is specifically targeted at UK nonprofits that already have some technical expertise and capacity to enact social change using digital technologies.
Comic Relief is looking to fund projects that use software and digital technology as a part of a solution to addressing any of these themes: Better Futures, Safer Lives, Healthier Finances, Stronger Communities, Fairer Society.
Comic Relief is offering funding of up to £60,000 for six months plus external technical mentoring.
Gilly Green, Head of UK Grants says: “We are delighted to launch this new grants programme. We know that lots of not-for-profit organisations operating in the UK have excellent insights and ideas for innovative digital projects that will make a real difference in communities. This new programme will provide the funding that has been missing. We will provide up to £60,000 for up to six months starting in July this year. And, if the project needs it, we can also bring in some external technical support.”
The deadline to submit applications is by 3pm on Friday 8th May.
eBay has proved to be one of the more effective ways to engage donors online and raise funds. While a lot of the money raised comes from the sale of goods, successful charities have also managed to establish a donor base that allows them to raise ongoing funds.
For charities that operate widely, one of the biggest challenges is maintaining a consistent brand identity and producing marketing material quickly, all without breaking the bank
