The MSE Charity is a grant-making charity launched in May 2008 by founder of the acclaimed Money Saving Expert website, Martin Lewis OBE. It is dedicated to improving information and education about debt, money and consumer issues in the UK. Companies spend billions on advertising, marketing and teaching their staff to sell – yet we get no buyers’ training. The UK is in debt crisis, a whole generation is in debt up to its ears. The MSE Charity is designed to try and break that cycle of debt.
Who We Fund
As the Charity’s resources are modest, the Trustees prefer to fund small to medium-sized non-profit organisations with a constitution for example registered Charities, CICs, Credit Unions, excluding statutory organisations.
Organisations should have an annual income under £500,000 and have less than six months free reserves.
How We Fund
We invite organisations to apply if they have a great idea for a financial capability project, related to the grant round theme.
The themes will be repeated every two years.
Each round will focus on delivering financial life skills to different defined groups.
There are two grant rounds per year, applications are invited in February and September only.
We limit each grant round to the first 40 applications.
Most grants are below £5,000.
