Small grants for local charities

The People’s Postcode Lottery (PPL) recognises the genuine impact local charities have on communities, and with the help of our players, we have been a proud supporter of them for over a decade.   To date our players have raised over £161 million for charities, supporting over 2,800 grassroots groups and local projects.   These projects will have received funding through three Small Grants Trusts, ranging from £500 up to £20,000.

PPL was established in 2005 specifically to raise funds for charities as a ‘not for commercial gain’ organisation, and have since grown to become a major charity fundraiser.  As a society lottery with charitable giving at the heart of what we do, we are proud that 30% of each ticket goes directly to good causes.

With increasing pressures on charities, PPL players support has been a vital source of income for good causes across Great Britain.

We are delighted that the next small grants funding round will be opening in the New Year – details of which can be found on the three small grants websites:

If you are aware of any projects or local charities in your constituency in need of funding, please refer them to the small grants websites.
