Big changes start locally

Not eligible for the Virgin Money Foundation?

Great ideas shouldn't go to waste. Even if you're not eligible for help from the Virgin Money Foundation, you could still get funding from one of our other Virgin Group initiatives. There are also many other local and national organisations to try, like the Big Lottery Fund.

We've listed some of them below.

Virgin StartUp

If you're looking for funding to start a business, then Virgin StartUp may be able to help. You're eligible if you have either a fully-formed business plan, an existing business that's less than a year old or even just a great idea!

Just go to and register your interest. Virgin StartUp will then get in touch to find out about the kind of help and advice you need.
