WHAT we fund

What we fund…

Grants may be considered for a range of purposes and could include:

  • Grants for core funding to include staff costs.
  • Ongoing running costs for specific projects

The type, size and time period of the award is decided on the basis of the perceived ‘difference’ that our support will make to the organisation, to the project and to the targeted beneficiaries.

It is important that you tell us in your application the full extent of the funding you really need to achieve your aims and objectives, in order for us to assess how best we can contribute.
