Application Process
We want to make applying for a grant as simple as we can, 
we know applying for funding can be a huge challenge for 
most organisations. 

Each round will focus on delivering financial life skills to different defined groups.  

So for each themed grant round there is an Application Brief which outlines what you need to include in your four page Funding Proposal document. You will be prompted to upload the Proposal as part of the short online application process. 

Applications are only accepted electronically & within the grant round dates. 

We limit each grant round to the first 40 applications, so please apply early.  All applications that have been accepted will be acknowledged. 

The majority of the grants made are for activity costs although some grants fund salaries and running costs. We do not fund capital costs. 

The majority of grants given are under £5k but exceptional applications could go up to £10k. 

Data Usage

As a necessary part of the application process the MSE Charity will be collecting data about your charity.  We may use this information as part of the process of monitoring the use of those grants.

From time to time the MSE Charity may share the information with other grant providers and external auditors for the following purposes:

  • determining, preventing or detecting crime
  • ensuring that no one individual is receiving multiple grants
  • as part of our external auditing requirements
We will not keep your information on file for longer than we need to. In usual circumstances your file will be shredded after seven years.

By sending us an application you give your explicit consent for us to use data relating to your organisation for the purposes outlined here.

The Application Brief is now available to download click image above.
