Today I was representing the Zooniverse at a very exciting meeting in London. I was at the headquarters of the Royal Astronomical Society to hear about their RAS 200: Sky & Earth fund. It will award £1 million to projects that engage people in astronomy and geophysics at a grassroots and diverse community level in the run-up to the RAS 200th anniversary in 2020. They are looking to fund ten projects in total for five years and are willing to listen to all sorts of proposals. You can read more about it here www.ras.org.uk/200
