The next closing date for applications to the Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation is the 15th September 2016.
Funding is available registered charities in the UK for projects that contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability. The Foundation also supports organisations or projects that are not UK registered charities if they can indicate a UK registered charity that is able to receive funds on their behalf. Grants are usually made between the values of £5,000 and £15,000 and are provided for between one and three years. Priority will be given to small, pioneering organisations.
Previous projects supported include:
- Conflicts Forum which received a grant of £24,000 over three years to promote understanding between the Western and Muslim worlds by challenging attitudes, values and ideologies that promote conflict.
- Airport Watch which received a grant of £15,000 over two years to educate UK policy-makers about the dangerously unsustainable growth and levels of air freight to the environment and communities, and the influences and interests that lie behind them.
