If you have received a grant from the Foundation previously, you must wait a year following the end of the grant period before applying again.
If your application has been refused, we ask that you leave a 12-month gap before applying again.
Offered a grant?
Once you have been offered a grant from us, we will write and tell you what the process is. We ask that you complete and return to us a simple Terms and Conditions form. Once this is received, we will arrange for the grant to be paid into your account via a bank transfer.
We ask that you keep us up-to-date on any significant happenings or changes, to either the project we are contributing towards, or the organisation as a whole. Please either email or phone the office if you are unsure. It is also useful to be kept up-to-date with any e-newsletters or similar if you produce these.
Monitoring and reporting back?
If the grant offer is for two or more years, we will write to you a few weeks before a further instalment is due, asking for a report. Further instalments are discussed at Trustee meetings, and providing the report is satisfactory, the next instalment will then be made.
If the grant offer is for a single year (or at the end of a multiple-year grant) we ask that you report back to us when the grant is spent.
Reports should include a general overview of the organisation and people who have benefitted, information on how the grant has been spent, progress on the stated outcomes, plus your annual accounts.
