FUNDING: Edgar E Lawley Foundation Small Grants

The objectives of this Foundation are for general charitable purposes with particular reference to medicine for elderly persons, and educational purposes with reference to the arts, commerce and industry.

Its area of benefit is to any charity or not for profit organisation within the United Kingdom.

The Foundation’s preference is to award unrestricted grants to smaller charities and not for profit organisations.

They receive over 1,000 applications per year for grants but in a normal year can only fund around 100 to 125. In 2023/24 the annual grants programme amounted to approximately £200,000  with a typical grant being in the region of £2,000 per successful applicant.

Their 2024/25 funding will open on 1 August 2024 and close on 31 October 2024.

Successful applicants will be advised in November or December 2024.

All applications must be made through the Foundation’s online application form.
