The Trustees generally expect to hold two grants rounds a year with deadlines in May and September. Each round will be announced on our website. The trustees may also exercise their discretion to distribute funds outside of these grants rounds on an invitation only basis.
May deadline: The Foundation will usually consider applications from national infrastructure organisations and for strategic projects that may lead to national developments.
September deadline: Applications will usually be accepted directly from local organisations to support local or regional provision of services or the establishment of new services where none exists. The Foundation will work closely with the appropriate Legal Support Trust(s) to ensure the Foundation maintains its strategic focus.
Our grants round for national projects is now open for expressions of interest. The Trustees will consider requests for funding from organisations undertaking national work which covers one or both of the following key criteria:
The Trustees will look more favourably upon applications which:
Please submit expressions of interest of no more than 500 words to email@example.com by 5pm on 2 March 2020.
Invitations to submit full applications will be sent by close of business on 16 March 2020.
The deadline for full applications will be in mid-April (exact date to be confirmed) with final decisions by 15 May 2020.
If you would like any additional guidance at any point please contact Ruth Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7092 3973.
Please note that these distribution principles are subject to the discretion of the trustees and may be changed at any time. The trustees do not accept any duty or liability to any person seeking funding.
