This is the Rank Foundation’s small funding stream for UK registered charities and recognised churches which are raising money for projects where the total cost is less than £1million.
If you are raising money for a particular project for which the mainstay is capital costs (building work, refurbishment or the purchase of long-term equipment) or a one-off short-term activity (such as an annual respite break or holiday for disadvantaged young people) and have already raised a third of the total costs, you may be eligible for this.
The capital costs application is for fixed, one-time expenses incurred on the purchase of land, buildings, construction, and equipment. The short break application is targeted towards respite breaks for children or adults, and short term activities or programmes.
Please note that they do not publish deadlines or maximum amounts as this is dependent on the number of applications received. The most commonly donated amount is £1000. The Rank Foundation will also only consider applications once per year. Regardless of the outcome of your application, you may only apply 12 months after your original date of submission.
