MCS Charitable Foundation Funding Opportunity



MCS Charitable Foundation is open to funding a range of projects that advance their mission to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy and low carbon technologies.

If you are seeking funding for a project that you think they could be interested in, please complete the enquiry form, summarising what you are seeking to achieve and how this fits with their funding criteria.

Funding Criteria

  1. Funding should usually be for specific time-bound projects that meet the Foundation’s mission. Projects should have a UK-wide impact, either through having a national reach or through developing/demonstrating an innovative approach that could be replicated, adapted or scaled up. As a UK-wide Foundation, bids specific to the context in the devolved nations and regions are welcome.
  2. Bids should fall into one of the following themes:
    • Education, skills and CPD.
    • Public awareness/information and consumer confidence.
    • Zero carbon planning.
    • Local zero carbon delivery initiatives.
  3. Bids should also meet at least one of the following criteria:
    • Seed funding for innovative initiatives.
    • Support delivery of a proof of concept.
    • Research to support innovation or capacity building in one of the themed areas.
    • Sharing good practice.

MCS Foundation is also open to applications that fall outside of these standard criteria if the applicant organisation can make a strong case that the proposal could have a step-change impact in society’s action towards the Foundation’s mission.

Financial and Governance:

  1. Applications that have matched funding will be looked upon favourably.
  2. Grants will usually be for £5,000 to £50,000. In exceptional cases grants will be considered for higher amounts up to £100,000.
  3. Applications may be submitted from public organisations and not-for-profit companies as well as charities.
