MissionFish offers two £10k grants to develop online trading

MissionFish, the charitable organisation that has helped deliver for Charity since 2005, is offering two grants of up to £10,000 to charities that want to set up or develop an online or fundraising business.

The grants are designed to help the recipient charities become more sustainable, and therefore better able to achieve their missions.

They are part of a trial, designed to explore demand. MissionFish say that “if more than two sufficiently high quality applications are received, MissionFish may make further funds available to support them”.

Eligible organisations will be those with charitable status in the UK, will already be registered with MissionFish, and participating in fundraising through eBay for Charity. Organisations will also be “expected to demonstrate a commitment to online trading as a fundraising channel.”

Online applications must be submitted by 31 July 2011.
