We will consider donations:

  • Where there is clear and immediate benefit to the recipients in the UK
  • Where charities’ objectives are to benefit children, through education and/or welfare, youth schemes and projects, or the elderly and their care
  • Where the charity can provide its last two years’ annual accounts
  • Up to £3,000

We won’t consider donations:

  • To non-registered charities or individuals
  • To activities which are primarily the responsibility of central or local government or other responsible bodies
  • Towards running costs including rent or staff wages
  • Towards restoration or upkeep of buildings
  • Holidays, residential trips or overseas travel
  • Towards fundraising events, sponsorship or marketing appeals
  • Towards the cost or maintenance of vehicles
  • To large national charities
  • From charities which have successfully applied to the Foundation within the previous 5 years
  • From charities which have applied to the Foundation within the previous two years

The Trustees usually meet quarterly in March, June, September and December. Following the meeting we will write to you and let you know whether or not your application has been successful.
