Martha Lane Fox founded Antigone in 2007. Antigone works with a small number of charities each year, learning more about the needs of socially excluded people so that we can help promote their successes to ministers and the press. We work in alliance with a number of other funders, organisations and people to make these changes happen and are keen to promote areas of philanthropy and activism that are currently unfashionable and underfunded.

Antigone is closed for any further grant applications for the remainder of 2013.

Community Capacity Builders Grants

This week, UK Online Centres have announced a new funding model for 2011 – 2012 which will support community organisations to recruit networks of partners and digital champions, building their capacity to help get whole communities online.

Community Capacity Builders grants of up to £40,000 will be awarded to organisations that have experience of partnership working, building capacity to deliver projects and helping people to get online. The aim of the project is to develop local networks of organisations, people and resources and mobilise them to help digitally excluded people understand the benefits of being online. We will support local partners to develop their skills, ideas and partnerships to get people in their communities online. Projects must also establish a sustainable model which can continue to deliver in the future with no additional financial support.

UK online centres from the community sector are being encouraged to apply for the funding by 12 noon on Friday 4 March. Applications are also welcome from new partner organisation in England who can demonstrate a track record of collaboration with other organisations and delivery of community projects. To be eligible, they must have signed up to become UK online centres’ partners by 3 March. Please note: Private sector organisations will not be eligible to apply for Community Capacity Builders grant funding.

If you know of any organisations who you think may fit this description, do encourage them to find out more by visiting the UK Online Centre website. Non-centre partners can find out more about joining the UK online centres’ network here.
