Foyle Foundation - Small Grants Scheme
Created: 09/06/2020, Updated: 27/04/2021
The scheme is designed to support 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. The focus will be to make one-year grants only to cover core costs or essential equipment, to enable ongoing service provision, homeworking, or delivery of online digital services to charities that can show financial stability. The priority will be to support local charities still active in their communities which are currently delivering services to the young, vulnerable, elderly, disadvantaged or the general community either directly or through online support if possible.
Notes on award amounts: One year grants for core costs, equipment or project funding. Please note that competition for funding is intense and they receive many more applications than they are able to fund. Annual total and average for Scotland for 2018 from their website.
Who can apply?
The Foundation can only accept applications from organisations with charitable status. This includes registered charities, charitable incorporated organisations (SCIOs), excepted charities and exempt charities. Organisations must have an annual turnover of less than £150,000 per annum. Larger or national charities will normally not be considered under this scheme. Maximum annual income: £150,000
When to apply?
At any time, it may take up to three months to obtain a decision from Trustees.
