Applications will re-open in January 2020

We are preparing to launch our new five-year strategy. More information on our priorities and the application process will be published here in the New Year. The first grants round of the new strategy will award funding in June 2020.

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.
