The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation looks to fund pioneering organisations in the UK that are working to influence policy, attitudes and values at a national or international level. These may be single issue groups working to achieve a particular change, or organisations with a broader remit. The Foundation gives particular consideration to small pioneering headquarters organisations.
Particular interests to the Foundation include:
- Peace and Sustainable Security: the development of ways of resolving violent conflicts peacefully, and of addressing their underlying causes.
- Environmental Sustainability: work that addresses the pressures and conditions that risk global environmental breakdown.
Grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 per year, for up to three years, are available. The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation usually supports organisations for whom this would represent between 3% and 50% of their annual income (organisations with an annual income of between £10,000 and £500,000 approximately).
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Trustees meet twice a year in the spring and autumn. Upcoming deadlines for Trustees meetings are:
