The GoodCloud Foundation will make grants to UK based charities and good causes which have a clear and measurable benefit to local communities. Trustees will nominate causes which interest them but will also be open to unsolicited applications.
Small Grants Programme: it is anticipated that the first grant round will be open for application in late Spring 2021 with awards being made in Summer 2021 and then quarterly. Grants will be up to £12,500 and available for both core and capital costs.
Major Grants Programme: The major grants programme is scheduled for 2022 and will run alongside the small grants programme. Grants will be for both core and capital costs. From time to time the Trustees reserve the right to launch specific grant programmes focused on emerging needs or those areas that interest them.
How to Apply
Prior to the first round of the small grants programme organisations are invited to register their interest in applying by completing the web form.
- No grants will be made to the following:
- Religious Organisations – unless there is a clear social impact not tied to beliefs
- Overseas Aid Projects
- Political causes
The Foundation will be holding a number of ‘Good Future Days’ across the UK. These half day seminars will bring together representatives of invited organisations to discuss and advise on current trends and potential grant making within the third sector.
They will be open to a selection of those who have registered an interest in applying for funds and those who want to know more about the Foundations programmes. The days will also be an opportunity for networking, sharing good practice and having a voice in moulding the future grant programmes of the GoodCloud Foundation.
