Sadly, given the competition for funding, the Foundation is not able to help everyone and even those who fit the current criteria are often disappointed that we are unable to assist.
The Foundation only considers applications for grants from registered charities and not from other non-profits organisations or from individuals. The following, for example, will not be supported:
- Gap Year activities
- Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Operation Raleigh
In addition, we do not provide funding for either undergraduate or postgraduate students or individuals looking to undertake research projects. However, funding is available for Medical Research Travel Grants – please refer to the relevant section of the website for further details.
Please be aware that the Wingate Foundation is a small Trust and would not normally fund large charities that are well represented on the High Street, including local branch offices of large organisations.
