As part of its 10th anniversary celebrations, convenience store chain Nisa Locally’s charitable funding arm Making a Difference Locally has launched a competition offering £10,000 apiece to 10 charities. Any UK charity with an annual income of £100,000 or less is eligible to enter the competition.
Many smaller charities struggle to attract volunteers, supporters and donations, and the initiative is specifically designed to combat this. Hence, the prize money must be used to fund an element of marketing, such as the development of a new charity website or other digital solution that promotes the charity and its activities.
“The funding could be used to finance new websites, an annual report or marketing content to help promote the charity,” said Kate Carroll, Head of Charity at Nisa.
Carroll added: “We hope that the charities who go on to win the prizes become more sustainable, and Nisa will support them as much as possible to make that happen.”
The funding opportunity is being digitally promoted on social media through the Making a Difference Locally Twitter (@MADLCharity) and Facebook pages, as well as the Nisa Retail Twitter account – @NisaRetail.
