Our UK and International grant making strategy is based on five themes:

Better
Futures
Healthier
Finances
Safer
Lives
Stronger
Communities
Fairer
Society

Better Futures

Improving the lives of vulnerable young people in the UK, and enabling some of the world’s poorest people to gain access to vital services such as health and education.

Healthier Finances

Tackling financial poverty, and enabling economic resilience in families and communities, as well as supporting enterprise and employment.

Safer Lives

Reducing violence, abuse and exploitation.

Stronger Communities

Empowering people, organisations and networks to play an effective role in their communities and society, as well as nurturing talent and leadership.

Fairer Society

Helping people overcome inequality and have a say in decisions that affect their lives, whoever and wherever they are.

GRANTS STRATEGY UPDATE

The external environment for the voluntary sector in the UK continues to change. Internationally, the Sustainable Development Goals will be ratified in September 2015. We are therefore taking this opportunity to look at evolving our grants strategy. A revised strategy will be launched here in early 2016.

You can still apply for funding to the UK Main Fund until September 2015, and 2015’s final cycle for Small NGO grants has a deadline of midday on 18th August 2015. Please note Cycle 5 is only open to small and diaspora organisations. Funding for small grants up to £10,000 remains available through the Community Foundation network
