The Small Charities Challenge Fund (SCCF) is a funding opportunity for small UK-registered charities and not-for-profit organisations.
SCCF project grants of up to £50,000 are available for projects of up to two years, for UK-registered organisations working towards addressing the Global Goals (opens in a new window), to improve the lives of the most vulnerable and marginalised.
Your organisation or your downstream partner will also need to be registered in the country of delivery for your application to be eligible.
We welcome applications from organisations with strong links to the country in which their project operates.
SCCF project grants are a rolling funding opportunity whereby applications are reviewed on a six-monthly basis and can be submitted at any stage.
The application process is a one-staged process. All applications must be submitted online via the online portal.
A webinar is being held for all prospective applicants on Thursday 2 April 2020 at 11:00am (BST) and we ask all those interested to register in advance (opens in a new window) and read the guidance beforehand. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
To find out if you are eligible to apply for our SCCF project grant and details regarding the application process, please download and view our SCCF project grants guidance document (PDF).
