The Friends Provident Foundation is seeking applications for its “Developing a Fair Economy” grant programme from UK charitable organisations
o The upper limit is £200,000 though the Foundation would expect any project applying at the top end of this scale to be able to demonstrate a very close fit with the programme aims.
o The budget can cover up to 5 years. On average most projects are 1-2 years long.
o The Foundation will judge each project idea on its merits, but will take into account each applicant’s track record of managing a grant and their ability to deliver results.
o The Foundation has a policy of full cost recovery. Costs must be proportionate and based on a clearly outlined methodology.
o The Foundation has a two stage process so applications are reviewed at stage 1 and the full project proposal at stage 2. The Foundation has a small team and unfortunately does not have lots of time to discuss ideas. Please trust the process and submit your ideas with a stage 1 application. If your application is invited to stage 2 there will be opportunity to have an in-depth discussion with a member of the grants team.
o The work intended has a focus on the UK and there should be significant impact on economies in the UK.
