The Pixel Fund

The Pixel Fund is a small charity which distributes grants to other charities in its field of interest. The fund supports UK registered charities involved in the mental health and well-being of children and young adults.

The fund prefers to target its grant-giving to specific projects that will provide a measurable difference to the charities’ users. The fund generally offers first grants of between £2,500 and £5,000. However, no single grant is ever more than 5% of annual income.

The fund’s focus is the mental health and well-being of children and young adults, and it will not grant to projects or organisations that are not core-focused on mental health-related matters.

The fund defines young adults as those aged under 26 years old at the start of any granted project or work stream (where a project includes over 25s an appropriate percentage of the total costs may be considered).

The trustees are unlikely to consider any organisation with an annual income of less than £50,000 per year.

Funding is intended to support specific projects that will provide a measurable difference to the applicant organisation’s users, and not core costs.

There is a multi-step application process:

  • Groups should first attend a Pixel Fund Applicants pre-meeting to discuss a new idea and ensure they are eligible to apply. The next Applicants meeting dates are:
    • 7 February 2024 (13:00).
    • 9 February 2024 (9:00).
    • 15 February 2024 (12:30).
  • Eligible groups will then be sent a link to an Eligibility Requirements questionnaire.
  • Following the above, groups will then be emailed a request to fill out a due diligence form
  • Successful organisations will then be invited to complete an online application form.

Further Applicants meeting dates and times will be announced on a regular basis. This process typically takes around four months from start to finish. The Fund is paperless and will not accept anything posted to its address unless specifically requested by the trustees.
