The online charity sector resource has produced a range of coronavirus response guidance, including a list of national, regional and local funding opportunities.
The Charity Excellence Framework has updated its coronavirus pandemic guidance with the details of more than 100 emergency funds set up to support the voluntary sector.
The online charity support organisation has published details of 11 more emergency funding opportunities this week (March 30) to take its list above the 100 mark.
UK wide funding opportunities include grants, loans and donations from among others Big Society Capital, which is planning a £100m loan fund for charities, and The Care Workers Charity, which is offering grants to care workers.
Money raised through Comic Relief’s Sport Relief 2020 fundraising push will go to organisations tackling the affect of the pandemic on the frontline, adds the fundraising guide.
The National Emergencies Trust has also launched a fundraising appeal to distribute funds to charities and community groups supporting those impacted by the virus. This is being backed by an online match funding push by fundraising platform the BigGive.
