The Foyle Foundation is an independent grantmaking trust that distributes grants to UK charities. The Foundation does not support applications from individuals.
We welcome applications from across the country and encourage applications from all areas outside London and the South East.
Since it became operational in November 2001, The Foundation has disbursed £115.1M in grants (up to 31st December 2020).
The Foundation supports charities in three main areas:
The Trustees of the Foundation are keeping its grant making policy under constant review in the light of social and economic developments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please refer to our website regularly as we expect to refine our approach, depending on the length and impact of the pandemic as they affect the sectors we support.
We have reopened our grant schemes with revised criteria for support except for applications for major capital projects (major capital scheme unlikely to re-open before autumn 2021).
The Foyle Foundation is committed to protecting all personal information you provide to us. We will only use contact information you provide for administration, evaluation and research purposes to facilitate our grant making and to further our charitable activities. Personal contact information will not be made public in anyway. Please also see our Privacy Notice.
