Most of the funds offer grants of up to £5,000, unless otherwise advertised.
Most of the grants are awarded to not-for-profit volunteer-led organisations whose annual income does not exceed £1 million.
The Foundation defines ‘not for profit’ organisations as those:
Whose governing body (board or management committee) is entirely voluntary, although out of pocket expenses may be paid, and has a minimum of three un-related people (if some are related there must be at least three who are not);
Whose members do not receive any financial benefit;
Whose income and assets are used for exclusively charitable purposes (and any remaining assets are transferred to a charitable organisation);
That do not pay any dividend or distribute any surplus to shareholders or members.
Your organisation does not have to be a charity but it does need to have:
its own bank account, with at least two cheque signatories (who are not related to each other);
a constitution or set of governing rules, with a minimum of three trustees/committee members;
accounts or records of expenditure;
relevant policies (such as equal opportunities, child protection, vulnerable adults, health and safety etc).
