Velanidia is a charity dedicated to supporting the education, training, and well-being of young people in the UK and overseas. Historically, Velanidia has made grant awards to a variety of organisations including schools, clubs, projects, and community groups. There is no set criteria for the types of activities such organisations undertake; only that there is a clear strategy and goal to benefit the development of younger generations and equip them with the skills and confidence to pursue their passions. Donations are made to those beneficiaries the charity trustees consider to be worthy of support and which are not otherwise supported by much larger charities. Velanidia is proud to partner with ActionFunder as a founder funder. For its first fund on the platform it will make available up to £20,000 with the expectation that individual grants to successful applicants will be approximately £2,000-£2,500 for micro funding requirements (e.g. the purchase of inventory, the subsidisation of academic pursuits or the regeneration and repair of facilities). ------ Applying for funding on ActionFunder is a bit different. Here’s the process: sign up, register your organisation and post a project you want funding for. Your project will automatically match with any funds you meet the criteria for (grant amount, location, focus area). If you want to apply for this fund, make sure your project meets the criteria. Your project will remain live on the platform (ready to match with new funds) until you successfully win funding. ActionFunder’s all about saving you time so that you can get on with what matters: community action.
