The Garfield Weston Foundation’s Regular Grants programme awards grants to UK registered charities, CIOs, organisations that are either exempt under the Charity Commission guidelines or are registered charities or housing associations with activity in the following areas of:
The grant can support capital projects, revenue/core costs or project costs. Applicants do not have to ask for a specific amount – you are welcome to share your total funding need and shortfall. The Trustees are very experienced grant-makers and will decide what they are able to grant.
The Foundation is unlikely to be the sole funder of a project, activity or your organisation’s operating costs, so please factor this into your fundraising strategy.
It is recommended that applicants should have around half of their funding identified before applying to the Foundation. It is unlikely that the Foundation will award a grant more than around 10% (up to 20% for project costs) of the total costs of the budget.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
