Ecclesiastical Launches £1m Movement for Good Awards
For a third successive year, Ecclesiastical Insurance is inviting nominations to its £1 million Movement for Good Awards.
The programme has two funding phases:
Phase 1 will award 500 charities with £1,000 each. Nominations will be accepted from 24 May to 13 June 2021. The more nominations a charity receives, the greater their chance of winning. Winners are selected by a draw.
Anyone can nominate a charity to receive one of the £1,000 awards as long as the charity:
has been in existence for at least six months
is a not-for-profit organisation
has satisfied the due diligence of the promoter.
is registered with one of the following:
Charity Commission for England and Wales
Charity Commission in Northern Ireland
Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator
Charities Regulator for the Republic of Ireland
Jersey Charity Commissioner or the Guernsey Registry (Channel Islands) or the Central Registry (Isle of Man)
does not discriminate unlawfully in any way
does not support any specific political party or affiliated group.
does not relate to any controversial subject matter that is contrary to the values and expectations of the promoter
Eligible charities could range from smaller, volunteer-run groups to larger, well-known organisations. A list of previous winners can be found on the movementforgood website.
A charity can win only once but they can be nominated multiple times. The more nominations a charity gets, the more likely they are to win £1,000.
The winners will be selected at random from a pool of nominations and announced on the movementforgood.com website from 21 June 2021 to 2 July 2021.
Entry is free. Full details, including the terms and conditions, and the online nomination form can be found on movementforgood.com as can a range of resources for charities to raise awareness within their community.
The deadline for entries for a £1,000 grant is 23:59 on Sunday, 13 June 2021.
