WHAT WE MAKE GRANTS TOWARDS
Please read through all sections as your project may be included under more than one heading.
Preference is given to organisations seeking funding for projects which fall within the Foundation’s target areas for giving which are:
running costs And, in Merseyside only:
capacity building refugees
volunteer training and out of pocket expenses children and young people
one-off projects family support
equipment (if part of a wider project) homeless people
Trustees will continue to review the Foundation’s grant making policy at regular intervals.
No grants are made to individuals, nor are grants made for capital building projects or for work that clearly falls under statutory responsibility. Please see What We Do Not Fund for a complete list of our exclusions.
NOTE: Unsolicited applications that fall outside our policy criteria are not considered
