Global fund for children - The Phoenix Fund

Summary: Global Fund for Children (GFC) and The National Lottery Community Fund are partnering to support the creation and delivery of the Phoenix Fund – an initiative that will provide £1 million in emergency grants to Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME*) communities across England.

About Global fund for children - The Phoenix Fund

The Phoenix Fund aims to put racial justice at the heart of COVID-19 pandemic response. The initiative will support a network of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic charities and groups in England that are working in the heart of their communities, providing essential and emergency services, support, and education tailored to the BAME community.

THE INITIATIVE AIMS TO

  • Offer core funding to BAME grassroots groups across England working with BAME communities
  • Raise awareness of the unique challenges facing BAME communities across England
  • Establish an effective, innovative partnership to improve and promote community-based organisations within English philanthropy

A collaborative panel of individuals who have understanding and lived experience working with Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities will drive the fund's grant-making decisions, awarding grants to BAME-centred and -led community organisations.

The Phoenix Fund was established with the support of The National Lottery Community Fund and Global Fund for Children. The National Lottery Community Fund has committed £1.4 million to the Phoenix Fund, made possible thanks to National Lottery players.

Global Fund for Children and The National Lottery Community Fund invite organisations in England that are led by representatives of the Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities to apply for grants of up to £20,000.
