Note for Applicants
We have noticed in recent years that a number of applications have been worded in very general terms, seeking funding for general operational expenses, rather than requesting funding for projects or items that directly help children in need as clearly specified in the Guidelines for Applicants above. Please note that your application may not be considered if it does not comply with these Guidelines.
Requirements for Successful Applicants
- Grants must be used for the purpose stated on your application form. The amount of the grant must be spent by 30 November in the year of receipt.
- Receipts and invoices must be sent to us by 30 November in the year of receipt. Part of the requirement of receiving a grant is to send or email documentation of the expenditure by the notified date. Failing to comply could jeopardise further grants.
- If you do not use the entire grant you must return the unspent amount.
