The February Foundation

The February Foundation makes grants to selected charities. It monitors and supports the effective management of grants made. The Foundation is focussed on managing its current commitments, although applications from some charities are still being accepted.
Email applications are preferred, and should be sent to Richard Pierce-Saunderson.
Successful applicants should not re-apply until at least 12 months after their most recent grant.
Unsuccessful applicants are eligible to re-apply 12 months after their most recent application.
Please send details and budget of the proposed project, how many people would benefit, how those benefits might be measured (not just financially), and what the estimated cost of raising funds for the project is. It is important to include in your email application full accounts for your most recent completed financial year, and, if your accounts do not contain it, what your total fundraising costs annually are.
Please note that hardcopy applications take significantly longer to process than email applications. Please do not send DVDs, CDs, glossy brochures or other additional information. The Foundation's correspondence address is: Spring Cottage, Church Street, Stradbroke, Suffolk, IP21 5HT.
It normally takes 12 weeks from application to applicants being informed of the trustees' decision. There are no application deadlines as trustees make grant decisions on a monthly basis.
Please note that less than 5% of all applications are successful.
