We are pleased to share that the small grants programme will open for applications from 9.30am on 1st May 2024 and close on 15th May 2024 at 12 noon.

We will only be accepting applications from organisations for projects / activities in our environment and countryside funding themes.

Environment: protecting and promoting the environment through efforts including habitat restoration, species conservation, carbon savings and sequestration and circular economies.

Countryside: investing in the economic and environmental future of the countryside. This includes support of sustainable and regenerative agriculture, nature friendly farming practices and a brighter future for those who live and work in rural communities.

If your organisation works across our other funding themes, you can learn more about our plans for the small grants programme in 2024/25 here. We will post the precise opening dates for the August and February application windows in due course.

Our small grants programme is open for non-profit organisations with an income of less than £1m per year to apply for funding. The programme provides awards of up to £5,000 per year for up to three years. The average award is £2,000.

Prospective applicants should review our detailed eligibility criteria and guidance notes, as well as all the information on our ‘Guidance for Grantees‘ page before applying.

Applications will be accepted through our online portal from 9.30am on 1st May 2024 to 15th May 2024 at 12 noon.

Grant decisions will be communicated to all applicants in mid-July. If your application is unsuccessful, please wait one year from the date of your application before submitting another to any of the Fund’s grantmaking programmes. Regrettably, we will not be able to offer specific feedback on applications due to the volumes we receive.
