We prefer to fund small to medium-sized non-profit organisations with a constitution for example registered Charities, CICs, Credit Unions, excluding statutory organisations.

Organisations should have an annual income under £750,000 and have less than six months free reserves.

How we Fund

Between January 2017 and March 2024 - we invited organisations to apply for funding to deliver financial capability projects under four set themes.  These themes were Building and Developing Resilience, Living with Long-Term Challenges, Raising the Next Generation and Life Changes. 

Update June 2024 - Following a period of strategic review, the Trustees decided to re-focus the grant rounds to be more in alignment with their vision. To fund the delivery of activities which make a lasting impact of the way people think, behave and manage their money.  boost people's financial capability skills for navigating life.  For more details please see our New Grants Programme How to Apply and Funding Frequently Asked Questions pages.
