What we Fund

Our Purpose

The MSE Charity is dedicated to supporting UK voluntary groups deliver financial life skills, which make a lasting impact on the way people think, behave & manage their money.

Who we Fund

We prefer to fund small to medium-sized non-profit organisations with a constitution for example registered Charities, CICs, Credit Unions, excluding statutory organisations.

Organisations should have an annual income under £750,000 and have less than six months free reserves.

How we Fund

Usually we invite organisations to apply if they have a great idea for a financial capability project, related to the current grant round theme.  

Each round will focus on delivering financial life skills projects to organisations who assist and support defined groups.   The group categories range from children, carers, older people, offenders, to those living with disabilities. 

UPDATE April 2024 - Please note, following the January 2024 grant round, the Charity has gone into a period of strategic review and will re-consider all future grant themes.  Updates will be posted on our Latest News page, please check back in June 2024.
