The Pixel Fund

Project grants of between £2,500 and £5,000 are available for UK-based registered charities and Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) for projects that promote the mental health and wellbeing of children and young adults aged 25 and under.

Who can apply: UK-based registered charities and Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) with an annual income of between £50,000 and £2 million.

Key words: Mental Health, Children, Young People and Young Adults aged 25 and Under, United Kingdom.

The Pixel Fund provides grants to charities, including Charitable Incorporated Organisations, based and operating in the UK. Historically, the Fund gave grants to support research and care in the fields of psychological, mental and neurological diseases and disorders.

In 2018 the Trust narrowed its focus to concentrate on improving the mental health and mental wellbeing of children, young people and young adults, and has retained this focus for the last 5-6 years.

The Trust defines young adults as those aged under 25 years old at the start of any granted project or work stream. Where a project includes over 25s, the Fund will consider granting an appropriate percentage of the total costs.

The Trust actively researches suitable charities that would benefit from grants and also receive numerous unsolicited enquiries from potential beneficiaries. They also consider requests for follow-on grants from charities that have been supported by the Pixel Fund previously. It is not, however, the Pixel Fund’s policy to make multi-year commitments. The Pixel Fund actively encourages applications from charities it hasn’t previously funded.

Grants of between £2,500 and £5,000 are generally available for specific projects that will provide a measurable difference to the applicant organisation’s users and beneficiaries. The Trust will prioritise charities with an annual income of between £50,000 and £2 million.
