This campaign is designed to support charities through the longer-term impacts of Coronavirus pandemic and ensure continued support for vulnerable children and young people. To this end, the funds raised through this campaign can be spend on whatever charities need to ensure this happens.
Unfortunately, however, there are two exceptions
to this. We are unable to support campaigns raising funds for the following:
- Capital expenses
- Religious activities
In terms of timeframe, given the immediate need for these funds, it is expected that the funds will be spent within 12 months of the campaign (ie by July 2021).
Unrestricted funds do still require donor reporting. The Childhood Trust will require charities participating in the Champions for Children to tell us how the funds have been spent.
