Our Funding

The Allen Lane Foundation funds small registered charities, voluntary groups, and charitable organisations. 

We do not make grants to individuals.

We fund charities and organisations that work with seven particular beneficiary groups – please click on the links below:

In January 2019, we also launched a new programme of work focussing on Social Cohesion.  Please click here for more details.

Over a typical year, we make around 150 grants, to a total value of between £750,000 and £800,000.  

Our maximum grant is £15,000.

The average grant size is around £5,000-£6,000.

While recognising (and being willing to support) on-going, tried and tested projects, we are also particularly interested in unusual, imaginative or pioneering projects which have perhaps not yet caught the public imagination.
