Their Regular Grants programme accepts applications below £100,000 which are reviewed by their Trustees on an ongoing basis so there are no specific deadlines.

The Foundation accepts applications from organisations working in the areas of Welfare, Youth, Community, Arts, Faith, Environment, Education, Health and Museums and Heritage. As the Trustees remain flexible and wish to fund the most compelling projects, they do not have target expenditure by category. Don’t worry if your charity could be described in more than one category as it has no bearing on how likely your project is to be funded.

You do not need to have applied for, or received, a grant from the Foundation in the past, and nor do you need to know anyone or be ‘invited’ to apply – as long as you are not currently in receipt of a grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation nor have applied to them within the last year, you are eligible to apply if you are one of the following:

  • UK registered charities working in the UK;
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs);
  • Educational establishments (including schools and universities);
  • Churches;
  • Housing Associations; 
  • Museums and galleries.

You can apply when you are ready and when your plans and priorities are sufficiently clear to be able to make a compelling case.

The types of grant they make, whatever their size, tend to fall into one of three categories – Capital, Revenue (often called ‘core costs’) and Project work.  The most important thing is that you apply for what you need as this will be your priority and therefore the most compelling for their Trustees.
