The Foundation offers three levels of grants: Large grants of £20,000 and above; Medium grants of up to £20,000; Small grants of £5,000 and under for capital projects which include new buildings, extensions, refurbishments and recreational spaces to help raise the quality of life, particularly for the young, disadvantaged and older people. The majority (roughly 60%) of grants awarded are under £5,000. Grants exceeding £25,000 are exceptional and are typically awarded to major capital projects. The funding is for one-off capital projects (not running costs) such as purchase of leaseholds, new buildings, major refurbishments and transport. Rented premises must have a lease of at least 10 years remaining. Applications for transport should be for new, not used, vehicles. The award categories are under Community; Education; Health; Social Welfare.
Deadline: Applications can be made at any time. Projects with budgets of £100,000 upwards should apply at least six months before their project start date.
