Aims/priorities: The Fund's focus is the mental health and wellbeing of children and young adults, and it will not grant to projects or organisations that are not core-focused on mental health related matters. The following criteria apply:
- The Fund defines young adults as those aged under 26 years old at the start of any granted project or work stream. Where a project includes over 25s, the Fund will consider granting an appropriate percentage of the total costs.
- The Fund only makes grants to charities and community interest organisations registered in England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.
Established charities must have:
- Fixed trustee term limits beyond which sitting trustees cannot remain in post.
- Considered organisational risk policies.
- No, or at least declared and recognised, conflicts of interest within the governance structures.
- A sustainable pension scheme.
New charities will be expected to provide at least a first full set of accounts before the Fund will consider granting to the organisation.
Who can apply? Applications will be accepted from registered charities and community interest organisations based in the UK. Trustees have a strong preference for organisations with annual income of under £10 million.
Grant amount: The Fund generally offers first grants of between £500 and £5,000. However, no single grant is ever more than 5% of annual income.
Application process: The online application form can be found at the Pixel Fund website.
Deadline: Applications may be made at any time.
