The Foundation is interested in funding work which benefits people in the following groups, or generalist work which includes significant numbers from more than one such group:
If the beneficiaries do not include a significant proportion of people from one or more of these groups it is unlikely an application will be successful.
There is a 2 stage application process. Applications take between 2 and 6 months to process fully
The grants are relatively modest. Single, one-off grants range from as little as £500 up to £15,000. Grants repeated for more than one year vary from about £500 per annum up to £5,000 per annum, for a maximum of three years.
To make sure that grants of this size have an impact the Foundation will not fund larger organisations. The Foundation will make single grants, or grants for two or three years. It is unlikely to make a second grant immediately after one has finished and if an application is refused, they ask applicants to wait a year before applying again.
Application Form: There is no formal application form - only a short Registration Form to give basic information which you should complete and send with your application. This form is available to download from the website, where application guidance is also detailed.
Deadline: Applications can be submitted at any time and will be considered at the next Trustee meeting.
