How to apply
Application is only by this online form, which is open yearly from 1st August to around the end of August. Please make sure your project falls within the criteria below before applying. When we close you will not longer be able to access the form to submit. If we supported you last year in 2019 you do not need to apply through this or any other method.
Focus for 2020
Our August online application process is now in its 8th year.
This year we will support capital or product purchases for UK registered charities in the areas of education and of physical and mental health for all ages anywhere in the world. We will give 10 grants of up to £4,000. The projects that we support should have a maximum cost of £20,000 ie we will not offer a small contribution to a large project.
We will only support smaller charities with income from donations from the public and from Trusts or Foundations of up to £1 million. Please don’t ask me what this means. If you are asking it probably means you do not qualify. Any questions, and we do not guarantee we can or will answer them, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
For this online process we will not support the following so please do not apply:
- The fabric of Christian Churches
- Educational farms
- Riding and carriage driving for the disabled
- Cancer care and research
This online process is only a small part of our charitable giving and we already provide significant support to the above charitable sectors and organisations.
I am sorry this all sounds rather defensive but we just do not want people to waste their time. We do respond to everyone but we do not tell you why you failed.
Please keep it simple and enjoy doing it. In simple terms it is likely that short applications do better. If we want more information we will contact you. You will be informed in October of our decisions. Please do not chase us and we cannot answer any questions.
You can contact us by email only on email@example.com WE DO NOT RESPOND TO OR ACKNOWLEDGE LETTERS or phone calls – Sorry!
Feedback will not be given
