Trustees are interested in supporting a diverse range of charities which support older people, from large institutions to small community-run organisations. Around 70 organisations each year are successful in obtaining grants usually between £1000 to £3000. The average grant is £1,500.
The Foundation was established to support capital projects and innovative projects but is unable to assist with running costs or salaries.
If your charity has a mixed age group of beneficiaries, the Foundation will consider a donation if around 80% are over the age of 65.
The Foundation is unable to give grants for:
Buying or leasing transport, ie. minibuses
Revenue funding, ie. items for everyday use
Building projects in the planning stages
IT which is for the use of administration
The deadline for applications for the January meeting is: December 10
