Nominet Trust offers grants for charities to improve their websites

Tom Latchford, founder of Raising IT, which will run the scheme, says the funding will help charities that want to raise more money online or though social media


Charities have been invited to apply for a share of £270,000 of funding from the Nominet Trust to improve their websites.

The trust, which funds internet-based projects that improve lives and communities, has selected the charity website specialists Raising IT to run the scheme.

Funding worth between £14,400 and £72,000 is available depending on the size of charity. The deadline for applications is 23 September.

To be eligible, a charity must have an annual income of more than £1m and be able to pay a £10,000 set-up fee. 

Raising IT will select the winners and those chosen will receive support from the company to improve their websites up to the value of the amount awarded.

The company said it was looking for any charity frustrated with its existing website because it was preventing it achieving its goals.

Tom Latchford, founder of Raising IT, said: "For charities disappointed with their web presence, or keen to raise more cash online or through social media, this grant provides the chance for a major revamp, as well the ability to create microsites to support strategic fundraising.

"Our interactive websites and technology platform has already helped to improve the donation journey and transform the websites of more than 100 charities."

The funding covers the technology costs and some support services.
