Voluntary sector

The Fat Beehive Foundation is an independent UK registered charity that provides small grants for websites and digital products to other small UK registered charities.

Improving a charity’s digital presence can be transformational, but it’s really tough to secure funding in this area. Their aim is to help organisations carry out their work in a more efficient and effective way, resulting in positive social benefit.

Who can apply

They only fund charities with an average income of less than £1 million a year. They provide highly specialised grants up to £2,500.

What are the funding priorities?
  • Environmental protection or climate change mitigation
  • Human rights
  • International development
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Social justice/Refugees/Housing
  • Education
  • Art and culture
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Prisoner rehabilitation
What can the grant be used for?

Core costs are not funded, they focus purely on hard-to-fund digital expenditure that other funders will often not cover.

Is there a deadline?

Applications will be considered at the next quarterly trustee meeting – these are normally held in April, July, October, and January.
