Garfield Weston Foundation funding:

They have two grant programmes open right now –

Regular Grants – For applications below £100,000.  Our Trustees reviewed these applications on an ongoing basis, so there are no specific deadlines to worry about.  You can apply when you are ready and when your plans and priorities are sufficiently clear to be able to make a compelling case – see our guidelines for details of what to include.

Major Grants – For the application of £100,000 or more. These are reviewed at one of the Foundation’s eight Board meetings a year and are carefully planned to be fair to all applicants.  If you are considering applying for a significant grant, please start by sending a one-page summary to our Grants Assistant, Ciara Molloy, via outlining what you are raising funds for, the total cost and fundraising target.  We can give you bespoke guidance on whether you are eligible.  Please note that if you apply for £100,000 or more, we typically expect your project and/or annual income to be more than £1 million.  Please do not apply for a major grant through our website.

As the Trustees review applications regularly and there are no deadlines that you need to meet, you can apply at a time to suit you.
