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
  • Salaries
  • 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
  • Rent

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.
