Deliver the project of your dreams: apply to the Dream Fund


The Dream Fund is now open for applications. Partnerships of charities can apply for up to £1,000,000 for the project they have always wanted to deliver but never had the opportunity to do so. The deadline for applications is 5.30pm on 15 September.

The Dream Fund gives organisations the chance to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life. They want you to think big, be ambitious and collaborate with other not-for-profit partners to deliver your dream project.

There are five themes for 2017 funding:

  • early child development
  • helping refugees in our community
  • conserving our marine environment
  • reconnecting with the natural world
  • engaging people with arts’ culture and heritage

Dream Fund 2017 is offering a total award fund of over £2.5m for charitable organisations to deliver their ‘dream’ project in Great Britain in 2017-2019. There will be two or three awards in total. Successful projects will be announced in January 2017.

Postcode Dream Trust is a grant-giving body funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery that supports charities who wish to deliver highly innovative, impactful and engaging projects across Britain and further afield.
