The Lush Charity Pot Fund supports small, grassroots groups around the world working in the following areas:
- Animal protection
- Human rights.
To apply your groups should have annual incomes of less than £250,000 and be run entirely or predominantly by volunteers. Grants of up to £10,000 are available for projects that aim to create long-term change. For example, priority would be given to a project that aims to stop deforestation (e.g. by challenging the palm oil industry) over one that aims to plant trees to restore an area that’s already been deforested. Projects should also aim to change opinion and behaviour through raising awareness of issues, activism, education and campaigning.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
