The Edge Fund has announced that the deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 1st July 2016.
The aim of the fund, which was initiated by a small group of philanthropists and activists in early 2012, is to support communities, campaign groups and activists struggling for social, economic and environmental justice.
Groups facing discrimination and injustice because of their class, ability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other factors can apply for grants to challenge injustices and create just and healthy communities.
The Edge Fund is a very small fund; the maximum grant awarded to groups is £3,000, and £1,000 to individuals. The Edge Fund will only support very small groups and have not yet supported any group with an annual income of over £25,000.
Previous projects supported include Hammersmith & Fulham Coalition Against Cuts, who were awarded £2,800. Hammersmith and Fulham Coalition Against Cuts (HAFCAC) is a campaign group led by and for disabled and older people in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham formed to challenge funding cuts affecting communities and the poorest and most disadvantaged members of society
