PLEASE NOTE: we have already received an exceptionally large number of applications. Frustratingly, many of the applicants are applying for projects that we have stated we do not support. Please double check What We Don’t Fund below BEFORE submitting your application.
Applications received for projects that are listed under What We Don’t Fund will not receive a reply.
We only award grants to organisations registered with the Charity Commission (England, Wales and Northern Ireland) or OSCR, or exempt from registration.
As well as having priorities that we do support, we also have activities and organisations that we do not support.
