Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation Opens to UK Applications
The Foundation offers grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 per year, for up to three years, for projects that address the Foundation’s main areas of interest which are:
- Peace and Security - The Foundation supports the development of ways of resolving violent conflicts peacefully, and of addressing their underlying causes.
- Environmental Sustainability - The Foundation supports work that addresses the pressures and conditions that risk global environmental breakdown.
The funding is only available for practical projects where they are clearly of a pioneering nature, with potential for influencing UK national policy.
Registered charities that are working to influence policy, attitudes and values at a national or international level can apply. These may be single issue groups working to achieve a particular change, or organisations with a broader remit. Particular consideration is given to small pioneering headquarters organisations.
The financial support is intended for UK registered charities for whom the grant would represent between 5% and 50% of their annual income (organisations with an annual income of between £10,000 and £300,000 approximately).
Organisations or projects that are not UK registered charities will be considered if they can indicate a UK registered charity that is able to receive funds on their behalf.
The deadline for applications is 15 February 2016.
