Department For International Development (DFID) will be launching the new Small Charities Challenge Fund this summer. This Fund will be specifically targeted at small UK-registered civil society organisations with an annual income of less than £250,000.
This will be the first time DFID has set up a fund dedicated purely to charities of this size.
The launch of the Small Charities Challenge Fund is in response to the consultation with smaller charities during DFID’s Civil Society Partnership Review.
Smaller organisations are a crucial part of the great British offer on international development.
DFID’s new partnership with the Charity Commission will provide support to strengthen small and medium sized organisation’s skills and capabilities when it comes to managing humanitarian and development projects overseas.
