Foyle Foundation Small Grants Scheme

Online applications can be accepted from charities that have an annual turnover of less than £150,000 per annum.

What the Foundation will Fund?

Their focus will be to make one-year grants only to cover core costs or essential equipment, to enable ongoing service provision, homeworking, or delivery of online digital services to charities that can show financial stability.

Their priority will be to support local charities still active in their communities which are currently delivering services to the young, vulnerable, elderly, disadvantaged or the general community either directly or through online support if possible.

At present, it will not be a priority to consider building projects unless these are for essential repairs or re-equipping, in order for you to carry out your work more efficiently or cost effectively and where you can demonstrate why there is an immediate need to carry out these works.

Until Spring 2021 they are unlikely to consider activities which involve social gatherings. In certain circumstances where social distancing prevailing rules can be maintained we may consider this by exception. Please email the Foundation to discuss this further before making any application. They will keep this issue under review and update the guidance to applicants periodically.

Applicants must show how any grant will make a significant difference to their current work.

There are no deadlines for submission. Online Applications can be received at all times, but it may take up to four months to obtain a decision from Trustees.
