Deutsche Bank has launched a new small grants scheme offering up to £2,500 to London-based education and community development organisations.
In a collaboration with the London Community Foundation (formerly the Capital Community Foundation), the grants are available to voluntary and community groups with an income under £150,000. Organisations with an income of less than £100,000 will be given priority, the Bank advised.
Deutsche Bank will also be providing match funding to groups who raise funds through localgiving.com as part of a 'match challenge' – up to £1,500, enabling the group to gain up to an extra £3,000 in total.
Organisations' success in specific areas, including retention in educational projects and improving community cohesion in community projects, will be assessed within the application process.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on 1 June.
