Core Funding

4 May 2012

Running costs? Overheads? Core costs? Staff salaries? Revenue costs? Administration?

Whatever you call it, we fund it.

In 2011 we gave £20 million towards organisations' core running costs such as salaries and overheads, over half of our total grant-making.  We know that for organisations to achieve extraordinary things, they need the ordinary things to be funded, and we are happy to do it. When you apply to us, follow our guidance and make a convincing case for how a grant towards your organisation's core costs will allow you to make the biggest impact.

You can read about a few organisations we've given core cost funding to and why in our case study section.
