charities but which seek funding for a
charitable project
The Foundation does not make grants
to individuals
Size of grants
The grants are relatively modest.
Single, one-off grants range from as
little as £500 up to £15,000. Grants
repeated for more than one year vary
from about £500 per annum up to
£5,000 per annum, for a maximum of
three years.
Size of applicant organisation
To make sure that grants of this size
have an impact the Foundation will not
fund larger organisations. If an
organisation works in a relatively local
area – a village, or estate or small
town - to be eligible it will have an
income of less than about £100,000.
At the other end of the spectrum, an
organisation which works across the
whole of the UK will be eligible if it has
an income of not more than about
                                                                    £250,000.

people across the UK, especially
those over 75. These needs were
identified as a priority partly because
some of the Balance Foundation’s
funds come from assets unclaimed by
older people and because of the well
documented growing need for support
by large sections of the UK’s older
population.

to apply from the website, but let's say
that nearly all our grants are for social
welfare purposes to help small
voluntary organisations and that most
grants awarded are for: -
• One off sums up to £5,000
• Equipment or specific projects
• Development and training

We always welcome applications for
larger grants and you'll see examples
of grants up to £100,000 over several
years, but these are, as yet, few and
far between. At this lower level, there
are
good odds on a successful application
and we would like to see more good
value, well-targeted proposals.
However, we are unable to fund all the
applications we receive and some are
awarded just a proportion of the
amount requested. If you are applying
for a grant for the first time, or if you
would like advice before making an
application, do give a Grants Manager

Grass Roots Funding:
The aim of the grass roots funding is
to provide opportunities for
anyone of any age, background or
ability to participate.
Grass roots funding primarily supports
organizations who wish
to build, develop or refurbish facilities
in order to sustain or
increase participation.
Grass roots applications may also
include an element of
revenue funding which enables the
sustainability or increase in
participation through a development
plan.
An organization can apply for funding
up to a maximum of £1m
and the percentage level of support is
variable but will not
exceed 90%. Ceiling grants will only
be awarded in exceptional
circumstances and to date the
average grant awarded is 65%.
Applicants must be able to
demonstrate that all other sources of
funding have been exhausted.
Examples of grass roots funding:
• Changing room improvements
• Pitch drainage
• Artificial pitch installation
Community Grants:
The aims of the community and
Education funding are to:
• Increase participation and
volunteering in sport
people with disabilities, black and
ethnic communities, people on
a low income and women and girls
• Create more inclusive communities
who play sport
together and encourage and support
local teams at the grass
roots
• Encourage the adoption of healthy
lifestyles and to
contribute to improving the well being
and quality of life of people
of all ages and abilities
• Assist young people and particularly
those from
disadvantaged backgrounds to
increase their education
attainments and raise personal
aspirations
• Ensure that young people
participating in sport do so in
a safe and secure environment
• Share ideas, research and identify
best practice from
schemes to enable more people to
participate in sport in the
School Funding:
School Funding supports schools who
wish to build, develop or
modernise/upgrade facilities in order
to sustain and/or increase
participation.
Much of this will be done by targeting
schools that are in real
need of support.
Special emphasis is placed upon the
needs of the most deprived
areas in the country. 51% of the
budget (£15.3m) will be targeted
towards schools serving the top 25%
of wards as listed in the
Indicies of Deprivation 2000.
Grass roots applications may also
include an element of revenue
funding which enables the
sustainability or increase in
participation through a development
plan.
Examples of grass roots projects:
• Changing rooms
• Pitch drainage
• Artificial turf pitches
• Floodlighting.
A school can apply for funding up to a
maximum of £1m.
Ceiling grants will only be available
where applicants can
