Detail

The aims of this £10million fund, delivered by NESTA, are to find and support the growth of the most promising innovative social action ideas that have the potential to create a step-change in levels of giving.

Ideas could include a focus on pro-bono, donations, sharing or reciprocity. Unlike the Social Action Fund, funding isn’t being used to directly fund volunteer placements, but innovative new platforms that can encourage and enable giving.

Phase 1 of the Fund had 2 streams:

  • game-changing innovations - for ideas that have the potential for national impact
  • local platforms for giving - to replicate and spread proven or promising platforms

The first round of the fund closed on 14 October 2011. 32 projects were successful, receiving approximately £2.5 million in total. Further detail on projects is available on NESTA’s project microsite.
