Awarding funds thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery

Magic Little Grants

Magic Little Grants gives smaller charities and community groups the chance to apply online for a £500 grant to deliver projects across Great Britain. 

In 2021, players of People’s Postcode Lottery will continue to support this successful partnership. Applications open from March 1st until October 31st.

With its simple 20-minute application process and an outcome within 6 weeks, the Magic Little Grants fund reduces the work required for grass-roots organisations to access the funding they need to launch or strengthen their services. The following criteria apply:

  • Organisations must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000.
  • Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.

As well as receiving a Magic Little Grant, successful organisations that are new to Localgiving will also be given a free annual membership with Localgiving worth £96. This membership gives them access to all of Localgiving’s wider online fundraising services, such as regular fundraising campaigns and training.

Interested in applying?


Please note that the application process is administered entirely by Localgiving. For all enquiries please contact the Localgiving Help Desk on 0300 111 2340 or email

Organisations who are currently in receipt of an award from players of People's Postcode Lottery or in the process of applying for funding are unable to apply.
