Grant Application Process

Grant Application Process

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS  ...

The autumn grant programme will reopen from 1st - 31st October 2019. We will not accept any applications outside this month. The new Application Form and Terms & Conditions are now available to download.

 

New process: How to apply

1. Contact your nearest Fine & Country office and request to be nominated for a grant. To search for your local branch click here

2. If the Fine & Country branch agrees to nominate your charity, please complete the Application Form and signed the Terms & Conditions which will be available to download from Monday 16th September.

3. Please email your completed Application Form and signed Terms & Conditions to grants@fineandcountry.com from 1st-31st October 2019. You must include the Fine & Country agent in the email to show you have been nominated. If you do not copy in a Fine & Country member, your application may not go through to the final stage of assessment.

 

Grant Eligibility

1. The organisation is required to be a registered charity and must provide the Registered Charity Number in all documents

2. Grants are open to homeless charities, poverty prevention schemes and housing associations. Grants must be used for prevention of homelessness, care of the homeless or constructive projects to get homeless people off of the streets permanently

3. Both UK and international charities are eligible for grants

4. We welcome applications for grants from all sections of the community and decisions are made on prioritisation having regard to funding levels and never on the grounds of gender, age or race

5. Multiple small grants are eligible from the same organisation, providing that they are for different projects or items

6. Charities are permitted to apply for consecutive grants and do not have to wait longer than six months between applications. However, following the initial grant, we require confirmation that the full grant has been spent on the specified project or item(s) before a new application can be submitted

7. Applications submitted outside of the two application periods (spring and autumn) may not be reviewed

8. You must submit both the Application Form and the signed Terms and Conditions. If we do not have both signed items before the application deadline, your application is classed as 'incomplete' and will not be approved

 

Useful Information

We have two grant periods a year:

Spring – applications open in March, assessed in April and funds for successful applications are distributed in May

Autumn – applications open in October, assessed in November and funds for successful applications are distributed in December

We offer grants up to £3,000. If a charity applies multiple projects within the same application, we may divide them into separate small grants. If this is the case, you will be contacted and may be asked for further details and/or to submit additional grant applications.

We focus on complete transparency which is why we request as much detail as possible into the nature of your charity and the project(s) or overheads which you require funding for. This is relevant both before and after the grant is given. We reserve the right to request images, visits, interviews, financial records and any further information necessary for us to access the use of our grant funds and promote our funding to the public.

The Fine & Country Foundation operates from the Fine & Country Head Office in Mayfair, London. However, our Fine & Country offices are located across the United Kingdom and internationally. For this reason, we are more likely to make grants to organisations who have a Fine & Country office in their region. Please contact us if there are any queries regarding the reach of our offices. The Fine & Country Foundation will nevertheless take into account all charities which fall outside the reach of Fine & Country office. To search for your local branch please click here.

 

What Happens Next?

After your application is submitted in either March or October, it will have a preliminary review. We will contact you within two weeks to confirm that the application has been received and to request any additional information, if required. If you do not hear from us within two weeks, please contact us with the contact details below.

The applications will be reviewed by the Trustees in April for the spring session, and November for the autumn session. If your application is successful, we will contact you by the end of May for the spring session, or the end of December for the autumn session.

We have a limited amount of funds to distribute every six months. For this reason, the Trustees of The Fine & Country Foundation make decisions based on priority, reach, effectiveness, value for money, impact and learning. Unsuccessful applications are invited to apply for future grant rounds, unless specified otherwise. If you have any queries into why your application is unsuccessful please contact us with the details below.
