The application deadline for the Manchester Giveaway has now passed.
Manchester Evening News and Hilton Manchester Deansgate have teamed up with the Foundation to help us to give away £10,000 to charities big and small throughout the Manchester area.
Running from 24 July to 28 August 2015, local charities, schools and clubs that help children across Greater Manchester have the opportunity to apply for a share of £10,000.
The money was raised by our big-hearted Foundation supporters in Manchester so we wanted to ensure that it would benefit the young people of the city. The Giveaway is aimed at helping those organisations who work hard to improve young lives, often with tight resources. With the help of the Manchester Evening News and the team at Hilton Manchester Deansgate, the Foundation will be able to identify local charities and causes that need our help.
Now in their 7th year, the Giveaways have seen more than £211,000 donated to 205 different local organisations. Outdoor learning, arts and crafts materials, travel costs, sports equipment, specialist and crisis counselling, therapy and cancer care, refurbishments and resource packs have all be funded through Giveaways, enabling more than 38,543 young people to benefit directly.
