To make a difference to local charities across North Wales, Merseyside, west Cheshire and North Shropshire.
Charities and not for profit organisations across North Wales, Merseyside, West Cheshire and North Shropshire that work with disadvantaged children and families have the opportunity to apply for funding through the Morgan Foundation.
The Foundation is particularly keen to support those who have already begun to make an impact, but need a helping hand to expand their work and increase their effectiveness.
Funding is available for projects that have a positive effect on their welfare and quality of life, or which expands the opportunities and life choices for young people in this region. The type, size and time period of the award is decided on the basis of the perceived 'difference' that the Foundation’s support will make to the organisation, to the project and to the targeted beneficiaries.
Minibuses may be provided to eligible organisations. The vehicles are supplied as either as standard, or fully adapted for use by physically disabled passengers if required. Recipients are carefully consulted on their needs to ensure the correct adaptations are achieved and all buses are finished with the Morgan Foundation Smiley bus logo and the receiving organisation’s name, logo and contact details. The Foundation also runs the Morgan Foundation Entrepreneur Awards, further information and how to register is available from the website.
Exclusions: Generally the Foundation does not support national charities or large organisations.
Who Can Apply: Though the majority of the recipients of grants are registered charities, the Foundation also consider applications from other types of organisations which are pursuing charitable causes and where aims and objectives are ‘not for profit’.
How to Apply: Download and print from the website
When to Apply: Applications can be made at any time as Trustee meetings are held regularly throughout the year. However, organisations should be aware that applications are considered in chronological order and it can take up to six months for the process to be completed.
