Money Saving Expert (MSE) Charity Opens for First Round of 2017

The Money Saving Expert (MSE) Charity has relaunched for 2017. After a strategic review, the charity has now adopted a themed approach for each funding round.

There will now be two funding rounds per year with applications invited in February and September.

To be eligible, projects must address the theme set out by the charity:

  • Raising the Next Generation projects should focus on children, youth, and families. Applications will be accepted from 1 February 2017 to 3 March 2017.
  • Life Changing Transitions projects should focus on bereavement, redundancy, retirement, relationship breakdown, homelessness, offenders and resettlement. Applications will be accepted from 1 September 2017 to 29 September 2017.

Most grants will be for less than £5,000.

Small to medium-sized non-profit organisations with a constitution can apply. This includes UK registered charities, community interest companies, social enterprises and credit unions.

To be eligible, applicants should have an annual income of less than £500,000 and have unrestricted reserves that are less than six months of their running costs.

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.

The Raising the Next Generation grant round is open from 1 February until 3 March 2017 but will close as soon as 40 applications are accepted.
