Spirit of Manchester Fund

The Spirit of Manchester Fund was established in 2015 as part of our annual Spirit of Manchester programme. The purpose of the Fund is to provide mini-grants to local voluntary and community groups, social enterprises or registered charities to help deliver projects, events or community activities which will improve the wellbeing of people who live, work or study in Manchester.

We believe the wealth of talent, skills and energy in local community can be unleashed with a small amount of funding. Every penny donated to the Spirit of Manchester Fund will support local projects that alleviate poverty, improve health, and develop skills, education and employment.

You can make a one off donation or start a regular donation today and you will make a real difference to peoples’ lives in Manchester. We want to encourage local people and businesses to get involved and support their local community organisations by pledging contributions to the Spirit of Manchester Fund. Even a small amount can help make a huge difference.

The Spirit of Manchester Fund is currently closed for applications find out more information here

As the Fund develops we’ll be exploring ways to get more people involved not just in contributing funds but in deciding how the funds should be used. We’ll also be reporting back annually at our Spirit of Manchester Awards about what has been achieved with the funds.
