Funding available from the WG Edwards Charitable Foundation
The WG Edwards Charitable Foundation provides grants of between £1000-£3000, with the average grant being for £1700
Trustees are particularly interested in supporting diverse charities which support older people – this is all the way from large institutions to small community-run organisations.
The Foundation was established to support capital projects and innovative projects but is unable to assist with running costs or salaries.
If your charity has a mixed age group of beneficiaries, the Foundation will only consider a donation if around 80% of the beneficiaries are over the age of 65.
The Foundation is unable to give grants for:
- Buying or leasing transport, ie. minibuses
- General campaigns
- Revenue funding, ie. items for everyday use
- Building projects in the planning stages
- IT which is for the use of administration
- Retrospective items
If your charity has already received a previous grant from the Foundation, you must wait three years before applying for another grant.
Applications are ongoing but they are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
