Extended Description

For 60 years the Trustees of the Garfield Weston Foundation have supported local charities across the UK. These small to medium organisations are often un-sung champions doing important work to keep our communities connected. To celebrate the Foundation’s anniversary and the vital role of volunteers and community charities, we are excited to launch a additional grants scheme that will be open to applications from 5th January to 30th June 2018 exclusively – the Weston Anniversary Fund. This is a Capital grants scheme and applying is a simple one-step process. Please read About the Fund, its Application Guidelines and take a quick quiz to find out if you are eligible to apply. And if you are, good luck!

If this fund doesn’t fit your particular charity or project, then you may want to consider applying to our ongoing, regular grants scheme at
