Money Saving Expert (MSE) Charity to Reopen in January 2023

Funding for projects which support people from vulnerable communities to develop money-management and other financial skills.

Funded by Money Saving Expert, the MSE Charity gives grants to not-for-profit organisations that deliver activities which make a lasting impact on how people think, behave and manage their money.

The next round, which has been brought forward due to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, will focus on Raising the Next Generation. Under this theme, projects should support the younger generation (under 25) to help them learn financial life skills and to grow during the difficult financial climate.

Work may include:

  • School-based activities.
  • Migrants.
  • Lone parents.
  • Victims and survivors of domestic abuse.
  • Family outreach services.

Small to medium-sized non-profit organisations with a constitution can apply, including UK registered charities, community interest companies, social enterprises and credit unions, providing they have an annual turnover of less than £750,000 and reserves of less than six months’ running costs.

Grants of up to £7,500 are available. The MSE Charity will consider full project cost recovery, but costs must only relate to the project itself and not the organisation’s core funding.

This round is due to open at 9am on 3 January 2023.
