Lush Charity Pot

The Lush Charity Pot is a South West based funder which aims to support small charitable groups/organisations (i.e. with an annual income of less than £250,000) that do not have access to fundraising support.
Groups working in the following areas are encouraged to apply:
o Human rights.
o Animal protection.
o The environment.
Projects that create long-term change are given priority. Therefore projects which prevent abuse of people, animals or the planet, are prioritised over projects which care for and rehabilitate victims of abuse.
Projects should aim to tackle the root cause of the problem by changing opinion and behaviour through raising awareness of issues, activism, education and campaigning.
Only projects which use peaceful and respectful means to achieve social change will be considered for funding, which may include protests, demonstrations and non-cooperation.
Grants are made up to the value of £10,000. An average grant is approximately £4,000.
Funding is not available for organisations that:
• Promotes or supports violence, aggression or oppression towards others.
• Denies the human rights of others.
• Is involved in cruelty or subjugation of animals, including testing on animals for research.
• Forces or coerces others to change their religious beliefs.
• Harbours racism, prejudice or judges others on anything other than their own actions.
• Has not made every effort to be environmentally responsible.
• Has many supporters and corporate sponsors or is able to secure mainstream funding such as government grants.
Neither is funding available for the following:
• Popular causes such as health charities, social welfare, religious causes, children and young people, and military related causes.
• Religious organisations.
• Schools.
• Councils.
• Student expeditions or academic studies.
• Sponsored walks.
• Fundraising initiatives or sponsor events; or
• Salaries.
The application process is ongoing and interested applicants may apply at any time.
To apply, organisations should email Lush with a brief description of the organisation and of the project requiring funding, with the subject title reading 'Application Form Request'.
All emails will receive an autoreply and a separate email containing the application form and full guidelines will be sent a couple of days later. This funding application form must be completed and returned to Lush. It is recommended that applicants submit an application no less than three months before the start of the project.
