The Foundation has an online Application Form which provides us with initial information which we require you to complete. You are also required to attach a fuller description about your organisation, your proposed project and a detailed budget.


  • Review the Grant Criteria page to ensure that your application falls within the areas which might meet the Foundation’s criteria.

  • Submit your application in good time.

  • If your application is expected to be for £75,000 or more, send us a Preliminary Grant Proposal at least two months before the closing date.

  • Send your application to us using the Grant Application Form.

We cannot accept grant applications by email.

We are happy to discuss proposals for funding but please note that having a discussion with staff is not a guarantee that any application will go on to be awarded a grant by the Governors. The Foundation always receives more requests than can be funded out of the available budget.
