Deadline: 7 January 2020
The British & Foreign School Society (BFSS) is seeking applications for its grants to charities for educational activities.
The BFSS supports charitable organisations that work to improve access to education or the quality of education for children and young people in remote or impoverished areas both in the UK and internationally.
- Conflict or natural disaster: Projects designed to address the need for re-establishing and renewing education where the provision of education has suffered from conflict or natural disaster.
- Girls education: Projects which focus on enhancing the opportunities and reducing barriers for girls to access education
- Looked after children: Looked after children have significantly poorer educational outcomes than children not in care. BFSS welcomes projects which pilot approaches to improving the educational attainment of looked after children so that in time they are able to take advantage of opportunities afforded by tertiary education and employment.
- Organisations applying for funding should have UK charitable status or, in the case of schools, colleges, universities and Churches, “exempt charity” status. They do not fund non-UK based organisations, Community Interest Companies (CICs) or individuals.
- Organisations should have continuous UK accounts for at least three years.
- BFSS will only fund one project per charity at a time. If applicants are running a project with their funding, applicants cannot apply for a new grant until applicants have submitted their final project report.
- BFSS focuses support on small to medium sized organisations who do not have ready access to much larger funding sources. Therefore do not usually fund organisations with an average annual income above £3 million except in exceptional circumstances. They also do not fund organisations with an average annual income below £5,000.
