Answer a set of questions from a Grants or Social Investment Manager. We make a decision in 2 - 4 months.
We're sorry, but Grants Managers are not able to meet or speak to applicants before they apply because we currently receive 2,000 applications a year. We are working to reduce this number, so that we can offer more help and advice to applicants in future.
In simple terms, describe what you do and demonstrate your track record (including impact and successful partnerships). We want to see the expertise and experience within the organisation and some information (but not a lot) on the need for the work. It’s important that you tell us what makes you different. If you’re a relatively young organisation, please provide a track record of the key people involved, what have they achieved, their impact and influence.
Please use no more than 500 words for this question.
If you are applying for project funding, explain what the project aims to achieve, how it addresses the need/issue/problem, what are its anticipated outcomes (e.g. reduce the overall number of domestic abuse cases). If you’re applying for core or unrestricted funding, tell us what you aim to achieve in that period.
Please use no more than 400 words for this section.
Tell us what you need us to fund in order to successfully deliver the work described in the question above.
Please be specific and use no more than 100 words for this question.
If you are an organisation we already fund, or have met, you will be invited to send in a 1st stage application by a Grants Manager and emailed a link. You will also be asked to submit up to three key outcomes you hope to achieve in the course of a grant.
Once you've started the application form, you can save and return to it at any time by clicking on 'Save my progress and resume later'. After providing an email address and password, you will receive a confirmation email which will contain the link to return to your in-progress application form.
After submitting your application, you will receive an email with a copy of your completed application for your own records.
If you have any questions on the application process, please check the FAQs or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7812 3700.
Unfortunately we receive far more applications than we are able to fund. Of the 2000 first-stage applications we receive each year, only 1 in 8 go on to receive funding from the Foundation. We have no restrictions on reapplying, but you should look at why we turn down applications before deciding to submit another application.
We appreciate how challenging fundraising can be and if your work doesn't fit with our priorities please see our other sources of funding help.
