Deadline: 1 June 2017
The Wolfson Foundation is currently seeking applications for its Wolfson Family Charitable Trust Funds to support projects that help people with special needs (particularly physical and learning disabilities), provide high quality secondary education, or that improve access to important culture or heritage.
Organisations should be charities (or with charitable status or equivalent), generally have an annual income of above £50,000, and show evidence of long-term financial viability. Within the cultural field, organisations should have a national reputation for excellence. In the area of heritage, we are particularly interested in historic synagogues.
- Funding is provided for capital projects only (i.e. buildings, refurbishment or specialist equipment).
- Projects should be ongoing after the date of any award (i.e. not complete by the time that Trustees consider the application).
- Applicants should provide matched funding (which should be guaranteed)
- Requests should generally be in the range of £5,000 – £25,000 (only very exceptionally are awards made above this range).
Ineligible projects would include:
- Grants direct to individuals or through conduit organisations
- Overheads, maintenance costs, VAT and professional fees
- Non-specific appeals (including circulars) and endowment funds
- Costs of meetings, exhibitions, concerts, expeditions, etc.
- The purchase of land or existing buildings (including a building’s freehold)
- Film or promotional materials
- Repayment of loans
- Projects that have already been completed or will be by the time of award
