Strategic Grants Fund: Leadership, Leverage, Local

For partners identified by us


We work with local funders to collaborate and help leverage extra support for local organisations and charities.

We fund local organisations and charities, identified by us, sometimes in partnership with other funders. We contact organisations we’d like to consider for a grant.

Strategic Grants, like our Open Grants, are unrestricted and for up to three years.
