City Bridge Trust and UBS Launch the Third Round of the Stepping Stones Fund

Stepping Stones Fund will provide targeted support in the form of grants and risk finance to organisations that wish to prepare themselves for social investment in order to improve their social outcomes.

Open to the participation of charitable organisations working with beneficiaries in the Greater London area.  Interested organisations can apply for funding under three strands to:
  • Obtain capacity building support that will help them better access social investment in the future.
  • Pilot new ways, ideas or business models aiming for better social outcomes.
  • Secure risk finance that can catalyse a social investment package.

This is the third call for proposals of the Stepping Stones Fund, after two successful rounds, which saw 32 charities awarded a total of £1.6 million for investment-readiness projects.

 

There are also three open information sessions for interested organisations.  UBS will be hosting a open information session at 3pm on 26th July at UBS, 1 Finsbury Avenue, London, EC3M 2PP.

Apply now! The deadline for applications is August 15, 2016. Find out more about the Stepping Stones Fund and application process.
