How to Apply
Please note that competition is intense; we receive many more applications than we are able to fund. Also the Foundation only supports charities and is not able to support individuals.
Guidelines and Application Forms are available electronically in Word format for the MAIN GRANTS SCHEME, SMALL GRANTS SCHEME and STATE SCHOOLS (same form to be used for applications to the School Library Programme). Charities wishing to make an application for funding should download and read the appropriate Guidelines for Applicants before completing and signing the appropriate Application Form and sending this together with the supporting information requested to:
The Foyle Foundation
2 Rugby Street
London WC1N 3QU
Applications are acknowledged by email or by post within two weeks of receipt. If you do not receive this acknowledgement, please contact The Foundation to confirm safe receipt of your request.
Requests from State Schools
Please also refer to the state schools webpage for additional information on how to apply.
When to Apply
Applications are accepted all year round. We have no deadlines. Except for capital projects, it may take up to four months, occasionally longer, to receive a decision from the Trustees, so please apply well in advance of your funding requirements.
Please note for capital projects seeking more than £50,000 the Foundation will now only consider these twice per year in the Spring and Autumn. Therefore it could be six months or more before we take a decision on your project.
Guidelines for Applicants and the Application Forms are available in hard copy upon request.
