Funding to Projects that Promote Social Justice, Nonviolence and Environmental Sustainability – 14th September 2018 (UK)

The next closing date for applications to the Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation is midnight on the 14th September  2018. Grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 are available to 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.  Grants can be for up to three years.

The Foundation’s priority is to address systemic threats by seeking to change policy and attitudes at a national or European level. 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.  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.
