THE FOYLE FOUNDATION SMALL GRANTS SCHEME – Grants up to £10,000 for small charities working at grassroots level in the UK

The Foyle Foundation’s Small Grants programme is designed to support smaller charities in the UK – particularly those working at grass roots and local community level - in any field and 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 been able to build up unrestricted reserves to a level equivalent to three months turnover.
The Foundation awards one year grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 to charities which can demonstrate that such a grant will make a significant difference to their work.
Demonstrating ongoing sustainability is also important, particularly if the organisation has recently lost local authority or other regular funding. No multi-year funding awards are made. 
In the year ending 31 December 2013 the Foundation awarded 128 small grants totalling £610,200. A number of South West based charities have received grants.
Funded projects typically include:
o Core costs
o Hydrotherapy pools
o Education and support for parents
o Theatres and Arts activities
o Building costs, including village halls
o Youth workers
A list of most recent awards up to June 2014 can be found HERE.
There are no deadlines for submission. Applications will be received at all times but it may take up to four months to reach a decision. All applications are acknowledged, usually by email and all declined applications are also notified by email.
Applicants should complete the Small Grants Scheme Application Form.
A signed copy of your latest audited or independently examined annual accounts must be included with applications.
For further information, visit the Foyle Foundation website.
Applications should be sent to:
