BMA Giving 2021
We are now open for applications for BMA Giving grants. These help to fund charitable projects aligned with the British Medical Association's (BMA) mission to support the medical profession.
The BMA Giving grants scheme aims to support UK-registered charities, with priority given to those that align with the BMA’s values and its mission of ‘We look after doctors so they can look after you’. Applications for projects which involve doctors playing a key role are also welcomed.
The committee awards grants totalling £150,000 to charities whose research projects fall within the objects of the BMA:
- Promoting the medical and allied sciences
- Maintaining the honour and interests of the medical profession
- Promoting the achievement of high quality healthcare.
Charities are asked to consider how working with the BMA, a membership organisation of 160,000 doctors and medical students, is relevant to their mission and could benefit their work.
BMA Giving grants are only available for UK-registered charities. Charities may apply for any amount up to, but not exceeding, £50,000. Smaller grants will also be considered. Grants are not available for individuals, including tuition and course fees.
BMA Giving grants are assessed by the BMA Giving committee. In judging the applications, the committee consider the following points:
Importance of the work - the lasting benefits that the organisation/project will create to patient care, the medical profession or medical and health research
Project reliability and sustainability - excellent planning and design of projects, risk mitigating and safeguarding strategies
Appropriate use of funds - the funded supplies or services that will provide a valuable contribution to the project, accuracy of quotation, project completion dependency on external funding.
See the BMA Giving terms and conditions for further details. Successful applicants will be asked to provide progress reports and regular updates.
Please note: Applications for projects that support the health and wellbeing of doctors and medical students must complement existing BMA services. See the BMA wellbeing support services page for further details.
