The February Foundation makes grants to a range of charities and charitable causes in particular, the relief of those in need by reason of youth, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage, the advancement of education and the advancement of the arts, culture and heritage.
The Foundations grant making policy states their support to:
- charities which are for the benefit of persons who are making an effort to improve their lives
- charities which are for the benefit of persons no longer physically or mentally able to help themselves
- charities which have a long-term beneficial impact on the future of individuals, groups of individuals, or organisations
- charities which protect the environment
- small or minority charities where small grants will have a significant impact, and
- companies where the acquisition of equity would be in line with the trust’s charitable objectives.
In the last financial year grants were awarded to registered charities who were active in end-of-life care, healthcare and patient support and education.
There is no minimum grant. The maximum grant is usually £5,000 per award, but is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
