Charities invited to apply for £10,000, £50,000 and £100,000 awards

16 July 2021

Ecclesiastical Insurance Group’s Movement for Good awards is giving away a further £500,000 - with one charity set to receive a life changing £110,000.

For the third year running, Ecclesiastical Insurance Group is giving away £1million to charities through its Movement for Good awards.

Through the second phase of giving, 30 charities will be chosen by a panel of judges to receive £10,000 to be put towards the advancement of heritage and arts, education, rural and community, climate, human rights and equality. What’s more, two charities will benefit from an additional £50,000 each and another will receive a life changing £100,000 award.

Designed to give eligible charities1 the financial assistance they need to make a real difference, the funding can be used within three years and for a blend of project and core funding costs.

Applications will be assessed against four key areas: impact and effectiveness, sustainability, innovation, and care and compassion.

The deadline for charities to submit their applications is Friday 6 August 2021.

Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, said: “At Ecclesiastical we believe business should be a force for good. Charitable causes need sustained support and a sense of financial stability. Through the second phase of our Movement for Good awards we are actively championing innovation, giving charities the backing they need to propel their plans forward and turn creative ideas into practical solutions that benefit society.

“Ecclesiastical, the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK, is a unique financial services group. We are owned by a charity which means all available profits can be given to the good causes that are so important to our customers. As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of our business.
