Apply for Funding

We are currently working with partners in the following countries:




We are currently unable to consider projects that operate outside of these countries.  

We support small, grass roots organisations who work directly with their communities; our partners usually have an annual income of less than £50,000 and often less than £20,000.  As well as project-based grants, we will consider applications for funding for both capital and running costs. 

We receive many more applications than we can fund.  From 1st October 2018, the maximum grant award has been reduced to £3,000.  We hope that this adjustment will allow more communities to benefit from one of our grants.

We do not fund:

general appeals

political parties/agendas   


promotion of religion

To apply for funding, please download our application form.  Ensure that your proposal meets our aims and objectives by reading through our GuidelinesRegrettably, we are no longer accepting applications from UK charities on behalf of their overseas partners.

The Application Process

Email your completed application form to  Remember to include a copy of your organisation's most recent annual accounts, along with any other information that supports your proposal.  

You will receive confirmation of your submission by email.  

Our trustees meet twice a year.  Applications received before 31st March are reviewed in May. Applications received before 30th September are reviewed in November. 

We endeavour to notify all applicants of final decisions, but please be patient as we receive a large number of applications and all of our trustees are volunteers.

Grants are single payments between £500 and maximum £3,000.  However, we may consider repeat funding for projects that show encouraging progress.

Successful applicants will be required to submit progress reports at intervals throughout the life of the project.
