- The Foundation normally fund between £30,000 – £50,000 per year for up to three years. In truly exceptional circumstances this could be as high as £150,000.
- Their support is designed to take a risk on backing a proof of concept (where applicants have limited evidence), test and transition (where they expect applicants to focus on evidence-gathering) or scale up (where there’s rigorous evidence and still serious room to grow).
- They’re happy to fund up to 100% of costs, but equally happy to co-fund.
- An idea which addresses the root causes of hunger, helping the hungriest families in countries rated alarming or serious on the Global Hunger Index who are affected by climate change.
- An innovative idea or better way of delivering a proven idea to tackle hunger and strengthen resilience to climate change. Innovation with the potential to disrupt the status quo.
- An idea that has the potential to spread, from a small field pilot to a whole new country, region and beyond.
- A team of changemakers, gamechangers, visionaries, go-getters and innovators, underpinned by a sound organisational vision and strategy.
- Legally incorporated not-for-profits – applicants could be a charity, a community-based organisation, a social enterprise, or a university.
The foundation is unlikely to fund, but may consider if applicants have a good reason why:

This tool will help you keep track of all upcoming grant opportunities and their deadlines and view them in a beautiful calendar format. Learn more.
- Overhead costs that are over 10% – because the their experience tells them this is the standard benchmark.
- Work set in conflict zones or fragile states – because project delivery is likely to be impacted by security concerns, and they will find it difficult to visit the project.
The foundation won’t fund (so don’t ask):
- Core costs alone, but are happy to include these as overheads pro-rata to the project.
- The promotion of religious or political causes, general appeals or circulars, individual sponsorship, events or conferences.
