Application guidelines

The February Foundation makes grants to a range of charities and charitable activities in accordance with its grant making policy which is set out in the Charity's annual report & accounts (available to download via sidebar).

The application process is simple. There are no appplication forms. Email applications are preferred, and should be sent to Richard Pierce-Saunderson.

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. Receipt of hardcopy applications is not acknowledged. 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 normally make grant decisions on a monthly basis.

Please note that less than 5% of all applications are successful.

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.
