Who can apply for a grant?

The Wesleyan Foundation provides financial support for projects that centre on education, health, innovation and social development. For example, initiatives that tackle food poverty or support children with additional needs.

We help registered charities and constituted voluntary and community groups across the UK. You can apply for a grant on behalf of an organisation, as long as it has an annual income of less than £500,000.

    Following the grants panel, applicants will be informed by the community foundation they applied through within one month of the panel date.
  • Who do I contact with a query?
    If you have any questions or want to know when the application window is open, you should visit your local Community Foundation website.
  • What if my location isn't listed?

    If your location isn't listed then you won't be able to apply for a grant from the Wesleyan Foundation. We work with as many Community Foundations as we can, but unfortunately we can't help every area in the UK.
