The Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation is an independent grant-making charity. Funds are given to charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales within a set of carefully considered guidelines. They do not support individuals or overseas projects.
Grants are awarded to those specifically applying for assistance towards a capital project: new build, major refurbishment, equipment or transport. Please note that only fund capital projects and running costs which include salaries, are not funded.
The Foundation supports charitable projects in the following areas:
Grants are from £1,000 upwards and the majority of grants awarded are under £5,000. Grants are normally a small proportion of your total budget or shortfall. Projects with a total budget of under £5,000 should not apply for a grant. This is because the Foundation rarely funds a significant proportion of a project.
