Spirit of Manchester






Team Fundraisers

Be part of Manchester’s community response to the cost of living crisis.

Macc is raising money for Manchester’s charities and community groups to provide support during this cost of living crisis. All the money raised will go into the Spirit of Manchester Fund for local groups and charities in Manchester to continue to keep their doors open and provide support, advice and warm welcoming spaces. From services for vulnerable and older people, to local foodbanks, mental health support groups and community spaces which are faced with increased running costs - by donating, you can help a community group in Manchester support local people.

Why they need our service
As part of our Spirit of Manchester programme, Macc raises funds to provide mini-grants to local voluntary and community groups, social enterprises or registered charities to help deliver projects, events or community activities in Manchester. There are literally hundreds of local community groups - people getting together to make a difference. Our mini grants encourage and support that, often providing groups with their first ever grant.

Plan and expected results
The reports from all the mini grant projects are put together into a 'zine' which we share online to help people see what can be done, encourage more to get involved and of course promote the fund.
