Grant distribution

Helping funders distribute money to grassroots organisations.

Through our sister organisation, The Social Change Nest, we enable funders to support frontline social action.

We know due diligence and accountability are essential for funders. We also know that many unincorporated groups don’t have the formal structures in place to receive grants, manage risk or report on spending.

So we’ve developed a safe, hassle-free way for foundations, organisations and philanthropists to fund grassroots groups.

Run through our sister organisation The Social Change Nest CIC, our grant management service helps funders find community projects, get grant agreements signed, and arrange distribution, money management and reporting.

Plus, our online platform gives groups a financial home to safely and transparently manage incomings and outgoings. 

We began using The Social Change Agency’s service because it has transparency and collaborative decision-making at its heart. It is now a central part of our journey to encourage grassroots action in Plymouth. We think there’s a value in holding this type of function independent; it saves time and we can be confident in following best practice.

  • meet all reporting requirements between groups and funders.
