Foyle Foundation Small Grants Scheme is designed to support smaller charities registered and operating in the United Kingdom, especially those working at grass roots and local community level, in any field, across a wide range of activities.
Applications are welcomed from charities that have an annual turnover of less than £100,000 per annum. Larger or national charities will normally not be considered under this scheme. Nor will the Scheme generally support charities that are able consistently to generate operational surpluses or which have built up considerable unrestricted reserves.
Please note that competition for funding is intense and they receive many more applications than they are able to fund.
How much can you apply for?
The Foundation plans to make one year grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 for core costs, equipment or project funding to charities which can show that such a grant will make a significant difference to their work. If you cannot demonstrate this, your application will be declined.
Please note that demonstrating ongoing sustainability is also important, particularly if you have recently lost local authority or other regular funding. Please apply well in advance of your requirements.
How to apply
Please send your application to: The Foyle Foundation, Rugby Chambers, 2 Rugby Street, London, WC1N 3QU. At present, the Foundation does not accept applications electronically.
