The Transform Foundation has announced the launch of the 2017 round of its Charity Website Grant Programme, which will be providing £18,000 grants to charities to fund the redevelopment of their website. Applications are now open, with all UK-based non-profits eligible to apply.

The goal of the programme is to help charities achieve best practice with their digital presence in order to optimise the online experience for supporters, service users and other stakeholders.
The Transform Foundation is a charity that provides grants and other resources to the charity sector to fund innovative digital projects. The Charity Website Grant Programme forms part of their wider efforts to support the charity sector in effectively making the transition from traditional forms of fundraising and service delivery towards more digitally focused models. Their role is to help fill the funding, skills and knowledge gaps that are causing charities to lag behind other sectors in their adoption of best practice digital technologies and strategies.
The 2017 round of its Charity Website Grant Programme follows the successful pilot funding round in 2016, which funded the development of websites that have already gone on to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds online for the successful applicants.
The grant is principally aimed at charities with annual incomes between £500k and £30m, although smaller charities with ambitious plans for digital can also apply. Larger charities will also be considered for specific project or fundraising sites.
Any type of non-profit organisation may apply, with successful applicants in the past including causes as diverse as community development, physical illness, education, theatre, mental health, hospices, national heritage, volunteering, family, children & youth, addiction, homelessness, international aid, and arts.
