Matrix Causes Fund Accepting Applications for Spring 2022 Round

Funding to promote access to justice, equality of opportunity or a sustainable environment.

The charitable arm of Matrix Law, Matrix Causes Fund is offering grants to registered charities in the UK for projects relating to equity and justice.

There are two levels of funding available:

  • One-off grants of up to £5,000.
  • Grants of up to £3,000 a year for three years.

The funders are particularly interested in hearing from applicants working with vulnerable groups, including prisoners, asylum seekers, people with disabilities and women in refuges.

Funding may only cover identifiable items or activities such as:

  • Publications.
  • Staff/volunteer training.
  • Publicity.
  • Events and equipment which can benefit many people in the long-term.

In exceptional circumstances, applications may be considered from organisations that are established for “charitable purposes” and are recognised by HMRC as an exempt charity.

Overseas charities may also be eligible for funding if they can demonstrate that their organisation complies with UK charity law.

The next deadline is 11 April 2022 (5pm).
