FUNDING: Stanley Grundy Foundation- apply at any time

This foundation supports charities and voluntary bodies in a wide area of interests, from back pain to chess education.

The Stanley Grundy Foundation was founded in 1964 and currently has a particular emphasis on charities operating in the UK in the areas of Research, Innovation and Young People.

They make donations twice a year, usually between £2,000 and £5,000. These donations are generally targeted sums geared to specific projects or initiatives, rather than to support general expenditure.

The Foundation welcomes appeals from smaller specialised charities where relatively small sums can make a real difference.
