Marketors' Charity Marketing Grants Programme

Funded by The Marketors’ Trust, a grants programme to inspire and enable smaller charities to run marketing campaigns in support of their causes.

The Marketors believe in the power of marketing to deliver economic and social good. This Grants Programme, now in its third year, is being funded by The Marketors’ Trust, and its aim is to help smaller charities that may have great ideas about marketing campaigns they would like to run but lack the funds to do so.

How it works

Applications are invited from charities registered with The Charity Commission for England and Wales, which have an annual income of between £10,000 and £200,000 and whose main charitable activities are focused in the UK.

There is a total grants fund of £30,000, which will be awarded as follows:

  • Two top grants of £10,000 each
  • Four grants of £2,500 each

These grants are for the purpose of funding marketing campaigns and are not available for staff costs, capital investment, hardware or infrastructure work or ongoing SEO/PPC activity, although the campaign can include an element of PPC or SEO. Examples of campaign proposals that would be eligible include:

  • general fundraising campaigns
  • activities aimed at increasing regular donations
  • proposals for the recruitment of volunteers
  • campaigns to raise awareness of the charity’s activities.

Campaign proposals must be for a discrete activity that is time limited to no more than six months and which will be completed by the end of 2024.

All applications will be screened for adherence with the eligibility criteria.

A Programme Information Sheet giving full details of the Programme is available to download. Please read this before completing the Application Form.

There is also a Programme Flyer available to download.

Valid applications will be considered by a judging panel, which will short list a maximum of six for the two top grants of £10,000 and a maximum of six for the four smaller grants of £2,500.

Short-listed charities will be invited to attend virtually a meeting of the judging panel to present their proposals personally.

Thank you to everyone who has applied. Applications for the 2023 Grants Programme are now closed.
