Golsoncott Foundation Grants

The Golsoncott Foundation was established as an arts-funding trust to promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the public in the arts generally and in particular the fine arts and music.

The trustees’ overriding concern is to support those projects that demonstrate and deliver excellence in the arts, be it in performance, exhibition, artistic craft, or scholarly endeavour.

The Allen Lane Foundation

We are interested in funding charitable causes which we believe to be unpopular both in society, and with other funders. Our focus is currently on adults within eight beneficiary groups:
• Asylum seekers and refugees*
• Gypsies and Travellers
• LGBTQ communities
• Migrant communities*
• Offenders and ex-offenders
• Older people
• People experiencing mental health problems
• People experiencing violence or abuse
* We do not fund organisations working with single nationalities

Just Act

Just Act, part of the Crowdfunder family, believes in communities working together and provides all the tools and know-how to bring ideas to life.

The Just Act Community Fund will distribute £50,000 to community projects across England and Wales. They'll be adding up to 50% of the funding target to a maximum of £1,000 to volunteer-led community projects that will change lives for the better.

Trusthouse Charitable Foundation

We accept applications from organisations which are addressing issues in rural areas, and from local or national charities or not-for-profit organisations which are working with residents of urban areas (i.e. more than 10,000 inhabitants) which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 20%.

Within these overarching themes, we are interested in three areas:

WHSmith Trust Community Grants

The following community groups may apply for WHSmith Community Grants:

Registered or Exempt Charities
Voluntary/Community Groups (constituted)
Schools and pre-schools

There are two annual application rounds – 1st October to 31st March, and 1st April to 30th September – and at the end of each six month period grant applications will be reviewed and grants issued. Grants are made at the discretion of the trustees of the WHSmith Group Charitable Trust and are subject to there being available reserves.

Enable grants

Enable grants are up to a total of £15,000 over one or two years, and can reinvigorate charities through funding organisational improvements, development of areas such as leadership and governance, improved systems and demonstrating outcomes. These developments put charities in a stronger position to better deliver services and attract funding.

Celebrate England

Six out of ten people surveyed* say they cannot remember ever coming together to celebrate with their community. The Big Lottery Fund wants to help change this with our Celebrate! programme.

We are offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community.

You could celebrate something from your community's history or a local hero. Or maybe it's a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.

We have a total of £3.875m for projects in England.
