The Dream Fund supports charities to develop innovative solutions to society’s most challenging problems, enabling you to help realise a project you have always wanted to deliver but never had the opportunity to do. 

Charitable organisations across Great Britain are being asked to think big, be ambitious and collaborate with other not-for-profit partners to deliver their dream project. Applications that score highly in their originality, ambition and collaborative nature stand the highest chances of being successful.

  • Charities can apply for up £1million to deliver a project 24 months in length.
  • The Dream Fund encourages not-for-profit organisations to collaborate to deliver a more effective and wide ranging project. All applications must therefore come from at least two organisations, one of which will be designated as the lead for the project.
  • The lead partner organisation MUST be a registered charity. The main grant contact must be with this organisation.
  • Applications from local authorities or statutory bodies are not accepted.
  • Partners can be charities, voluntary groups, community interest companies, universities or other not-for-profit organisations.
  • Applicants are eligible to apply ONCE only, either as a lead or a partner organisation. This restriction also applies to organisations that have multiple branches, e.g. different branches in Scotland and England.
  • Please note that there are restrictions regarding income levels of applicants - the lead partner in any application must have an annual income that is at least two times the amount applied for.
