Bernard Sunley Foundation

By September 12, 2016Funding Opportunities

The Foundation offer one-off grants for capital projects, i.e. new buildings, major refurbishments, transport and equipment. Rented premises are expected to have a lease of at least 10 years. Applications for transport should be for new, not used, vehicles. Applications for equipment should be for single, high cost (£5,000 and over), durable items (for exclusions, see below).

Where grants are made, the projects are expected to be self-financing thereafter.

There is a limit on project budgets and annual incomes:

Charities that are fundraising for projects of £10 million and over are not eligible to apply.

The Foundation has a preference for projects of up to £5 million. If your project budget is over £5 million but below £10 million, then you should call or email the office before making your application.

Charities that have an annual income of £10 million or over are not eligible to apply.

There are no formal application deadlines. The Trustees meet on a regular basis and accept applications via their online form all year round.

Grants are divided into the following four categories:

  • Community
  • Education
  • Health
  • Social Welfare
