Postcode Dream Trust is a grant-giving body funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery that supports charities who wish to deliver highly innovative, impactful and engaging projects across Britain and further afield. Postcode Dream Trust operates its own society lottery and receives all of its funding from the players of People's Postcode Lottery.
The Dream Fund gives organisations the chance to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life. They are asking charitable organisations across Great Britain to think big, be ambitious and collaborate with other not-for-profit partners to deliver their dream project.
The Dream Fund is now open for applications. The guidance notes and application form are available to access here.
As part of your application form you will be asked to provide a link to a video relevant to your project. This is a great opportunity for you to really sell your idea to the people reviewing your application. This does not need to be a professionally produced film, and can simply be filmed on a smart phone or camera, and uploaded to a video hosting site. Please aim to make the video less than 5 minutes in length.
The video is a chance to pitch your project. It should explain what the project is, why it is distinctive and unique, and why it deserves to win funding from the Dream Fund.
The best submissions will highlight the problem you are trying to solve, the impact that the project will have and how it links to our areas of priority (if applicable). It is also a good opportunity to work together with your partner(s) and ensure you are all aligned on the project.
The deadline for applications is October 15th at 5:30pm.
