Spirit of Manchester Supporters

Supporter logoBy becoming a supporter of our Spirit of Manchester programme, you can be part of celebrating and rewarding Manchester's local voluntary and community groups for all their hard work throughout the year. See this year's supporters so far

All supporters will recieve a supporters logo to use for a year and also feature on our website and in the Spirit of Manchester 2021 Awards Brochure. Thank you! 

Our annual Spirit of Manchester Awards continue to be a way to recognise all the excellent work and thank the people involved in Manchester's voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. This year the Awards will be held digitally on the evening of Thursday 7 October. They will be hosted by our CEO Mike Wild and include short films showcasing and thanking the work done in the sector over the last 12 months. The next year is going to be very difficult for the voluntary and community sector and we want to help as much as possible both with support and also our Spirit of Manchester Fund. We need your help to build as big a fund as possible.

There are a number of ways you can do this. You could support one of our six award categories or you could provide raffle and auction prizes. All support including the proceeds of the raffle is put into the Spirit of Manchester Fund – our mini-grants programme for the sector. The proceeds raised will go to great causes in the city. 
 

How to donate to the Spirit of Manchester Fund

We want to encourage local people and businesses to get involved and support their local community organisations by pledging contributions to the Spirit of Manchester Fund. Even a small amount can help make a huge difference.
