Rainforests and Zoos

We often hear about the fragility of natural habitats or ecosystems, such as rainforests, which gives us the impression that by comparison to our man made world, these wild places are some how sub-standard, teetering on a precipice, where at any moment they could collapse. Sometimes the motivation for such descriptions comes from those who probably should know better, those who are actually trying to shock us into action to support these places, or at least to give money to their organisation in the name of ‘saving the rainforest’.

Applications can be made at any time.

Grants are available for UK-based charities and community interest organisations to support projects that promote the mental health and wellbeing of children and young adults.

The Fund generally offers first grants of between £500 and £5,000. However, no single grant is ever more than 5% of annual income.

The Pixel Fund is a small charity which distributes grants to other charities in its field of interest. Its focus is the mental health and wellbeing of children and young adults.
