We make grants for work which helps people living in our Area of Benefit
– New deadline for applications is the 18. September 2020 –
Hammersmith United Charities is inviting local organisations to apply for our September 2020 grants round – the deadline for applications is the 18th September 2020 and we expect grants to be distributed in early November. We offer grants to organisations working to prevent or relieve hardship or distress in our Area of Benefit and who meet the current funding criteria which from May 2015 are:
- Meeting basic needs (food, shelter, advice etc)
- Work with families and children
- Countering isolation (in any group and for any reason)
- Building confident individuals and communities
We acknowledge that the Covid 19 crisis has been placing additional burdens on charities and will also be accepting response and recovery-type applications to cover costs of organisations adapting to new ways of offering support to communities as well as maintaining and continuing to offer services as government restrictions are lifted. We explain how the funding programme works in the guidelines available here but we are always keen to talk to potential applicants and will usually expect to visit at some point in the application process. You can email email@example.com for any questions.
Our Grants committee meets three times per year to make funding decisions on a budget of £400,000. Basic information about all grants awarded are published on this page. Trustees are particularly keen to fund smaller, local organisations with a very strong connection to their beneficiaries and a good knowledge of the local area. Those meetings take place in October, January and May and we usually need applications to be with us four weeks beforehand. Please check the deadline at the top of this page.
London Funders are also coordinating a London wide coronavirus; applications can be made here.
Applications can be made by completing this application form and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 18 September 2020. Please note that we are unable to accept postal applications.
