The Phoenix Fund was established with the support of The National Lottery Community Fund and Global Fund for Children. The £2.4 million commitment from The National Lottery Community Fund was made possible thanks to National Lottery players and made available £2 million in grants to Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities across England and a further £400,000 to support further development of the fund.

* We recognize the diversity of individual identities and lived experiences, and we recognize that BAME is an imperfect term that does not fully capture the racial, cultural, and ethnic identities that experience structural and systematic inequality. Whenever possible, we attempt to name individuals as they themselves prefer to be named.
** (1) 51% or more of the board and senior management team are from BAME backgrounds, or (2) the organisation self-defines as BAME-led based on who is making their key strategic decisions. By “making key decisions” we mean that decisions on core strategic and financial matters are taken by a diverse group of decision-makers, not that consultation is undertaken as part of decisions that are subsequently taken by a group that is not BAME-led.
Global Fund for Children (GFC) UK Trust, created in 2006, is a UK registered charity (UK charity number 1119544). We work to generate vital income, create new fundraising opportunities, and raise awareness of the invaluable work of GFC’s grassroots grantees. Our aim is to extend the reach of GFC in the United Kingdom, Europe, and beyond.
