The Foundation will only accept applications from organisations that are located in the following postcodes: NP, CF, SA 1-13, HR1 1, HR1 2, HR2, HR4 0, HR4 9, HR9, LD3, GL 14-16 and BS 20-21.
The Foundation will not normally consider requests from nationally based organisations or local groups affiliated to such organisations. It limits its support to organisations and groups (including registered charities) and will not consider applications to support an individual’s activities or a private commercial enterprise. They are happy to receive applications from all walks of life including: youth groups, sports groups etc.
In order to distribute funds as widely as possible, preference will be given to groups requesting part funding and smaller donations under £1,000 in value. However, one major cause will be chosen for support each year up to a maximum value of £5,000.
The Foundation will rarely consider requests to fund the running costs of an organisation and prefers to support the purchase of tangible, non-consumable items. (Running costs would include travel costs, salaries, training, hire and accommodation costs. Consumable items would include food, fuel, printing, stationery and ink cartridges). Funding to improve the fabric of any building will only be considered if the building is wholly owned by the organisation applying for funding.
The Foundation normally offers funding on the basis that the project/purchase will be completed within a three month period from the date the grant is awarded. Therefore, applications for projects which involve long-term funding are unlikely to be successful.
