The Henry Smith Charity: County Grants

Local Grants

The Henry Smith Charity’s County Grants programme supports the work of small not-for-profit organisations and charities in selected counties with which The Henry Smith Charity has a historic association – this includes Kent. Applicants with an annual income of under £250,000 are eligible to apply, though exceptions may be made for those whose activities that are county-wide and whose annual income is under £1 million.

Grants of between £500 and £20,000 can be applied for over one to three years. £10,000 maximum per year and most grants are between one to two years.

Grants can be used towards running costs, salaries, project costs, or one-off capital expenditure such as building refurbishment or equipment. Capital grants must be used within six months of award. Applications for small capital items can be made at any time. However, if you are applying to us for part-funding of capital works, equipment of high value or that forms part of a larger project, you should not apply until at least 75% of the funding needed has already been raised.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Applications are normally reviewed between three and six months.

This fund is not managed by Funding for All. Please click ‘Find out more’ and contact the funder directly for more information.
