#iwill Take Action Fund
The Virgin Money Foundation matched £850,000 from the #iwill Fund, made up of joint investment from the Big Lottery Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, to create a £1.7million, three year #iwill Take Action Fund. The #iwill Take Action Fund provided grants under three themes:
- Our Physical Environment: empowering young people to make the communities they live in a better place.
- Our Health: encouraging young people to tackle health issues that affect their community.
- Our Culture: supporting young people to use art and media as a tool to raise awareness of the issues that matter to them and their communities.
The #iwill Take Action Fund provided grants of £10,000 to £60,000 to organisations supporting young people to take a lead in making change happen in their local community.
The #iwill Take Action Fund is now closed to applications.
