How we operate

Grants will be made for projects that develop educational opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people in mainstream education where self help or resources from the education system have proved insufficient. 

Grants will be allocated throughout the year; the Foundation does not operate with deadline dates for applications.

Grants must be spent within twelve months from the date of the award.

Grant recipients will be expected to submit a written evaluation report within three months of completion of the project.

The Foundation support should make a recognisable difference, therefore preference will be given to requests where the grant would cover a significant element of the total cost and to applications from smaller organisations.
