Ecclesiastical Movement for Good Awards Open for 2020

| Return|

Following on from a successful first year, Ecclesiastical Insurance is inviting nominations to its £1 million Movement for Good Awards.

The £1 million giving programme has two funding phases:

  • 500 charities will each receive £1,000 during the first phase which launched on 6 May. Nominations will be accepted until 24 May 2020 (23:59)

  • A second phase will take place later in the summer with further details to come.

Anyone can nominate a charity to receive the £1,000 donation as long as the charity:

  • is registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland

  • has been in existence for at least six months

  • is a not-for-profit organisation

  • does not discriminate unlawfully in any way or support any specific political party or affiliated group.

Eligible charities could range from smaller, volunteer-run groups to larger, well-known organisations.

A charity can win only once but they can be nominated multiple times. The more nominations a charity gets, the more likely they are to win a donation.

Entry is free and must be made via the online nomination form available at movementforgood.com

The winners will be selected at random from a pool of nominations and announced during the first 12 days of June.
