The Allen Lane Foundation funds small registered charities, voluntary groups, and charitable organisations. We do not make grants to individuals. We make grants for work across the UK – BUT NOT within Greater London.
We fund charities and organisations that work with seven particular beneficiary groups:
Asylum seekers and refugees
Gypsies and Travellers
Offenders and ex-offenders
People experiencing mental health problems
People experiencing violence or abuse
Our maximum grant is £15,000. The average grant size is around £5,000-£6,000.
While recognising (and being willing to support) on-going, tried and tested projects, we are also particularly interested in unusual, imaginative or pioneering projects which have perhaps not yet caught the public imagination.
