About two in five applications from Merseyside result in a grant from this funder. They are interested in wide ranging issues including, women, black & ethnic minority groups, grass roots organisations and other work to build skills and alleviate poverty. John Moores Foundation have announced changes to their grants please see website for updates. 

Area: Merseyside and Northern Ireland

Purpose: The JMF aims to enable people who are marginalised, as a result of social, educational, physical, economic, cultural, geographical or other disadvantage to improve their social conditions and quality of life. The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting those groups that find it more than usually difficult to raise money and are small or new rather than long-established.

In line with their commitment to equal opportunities, we support projects which aim to counter racism, sexism or discrimination of any kind. Projects which particularly focus on such anti-discrimination would be expected to have substantial input from the discriminated groups concerned. As a consequence preference is given to organisations dealing with the following issues:

  • Women including girls

  • Advice and information to alleviate poverty
  • Second chance learning
