Matrix Causes Fund
The Matrix Causes Fund is a charitable fund administered by Matrix; we have so far committed over £750,000 to national and international charitable causes. Since 2003, grants to charitable organisations have been administered through a fund registered with the Charities Aid Foundation. Members and staff alike make monthly contributions to the Fund and a sub-committee considers applications for support.
The Matrix Causes Fund provides support to organisations which promote access to justice (particularly for people trying to get support to meet their basic personal needs), or promote equality of opportunity, or promote a sustainable environment.
Applications are particularly welcome from organisations whose focus is on supporting the needs of vulnerable persons such as prisoners, asylum seekers, people with mental health difficulties, people (particularly children) with disabilities, or women in refuges.
If you have a project which you would like financial assistance with, please check the full criteria and make an application; the Criteria for Funding and Application Form can be found below.
The Matrix Causes Fund Committee will next meet on Monday 16 January 2017
Any applications to be considered at the meeting should be received by 17.00 on Monday 9 January 2017. Any applications received after this date will be put forward to the next quarterly meeting.
Any enquiries about the fund should be directed to the Causes Fund administrator Rachel Murray.
Funding for charitable organisations not registered as a charity in the UK
The Matrix Causes Fund may be able to consider applications from organisations that are not registered as a charity in the UK. The organisation must be established for “charitable purposes” and be recognised by HMRC as an exempt charity. For more information please contact Rachel Murray or Lindsay Clarke.
