Foundation Grants

Foundation Grants are available to places of worship of all Christian denominations around the United Kingdom towards work that addresses urgent maintenance, as identified as a priority in a recent Quinquennial Inspection Report or survey.

The works should be stand-alone projects costing between £1,000 and £10,000 excluding VAT.

Grants range from £500 to £3,000.

  • The next deadline is 12 May 2019 for a decision in July.

In order to apply applicants should have 2 quotes for the work, 50% of funding in place, as well as permissions (e.g. List B consent, Faculty, Trustee approval or equivalent thereof), and be able to evidence the urgency for the work. Projects should be led, overseen and supervised by a suitably qualified architect or surveyor, with conservation accreditation if the building is listed. We cannot fund work retrospectively though work may commence after an application has been submitted to us.

To date our grants have been used to fund small scale roof repairs, repointing, drainage, guttering etc. The grants can also be used to fund small investigate works and surveys.

How to Apply

Applications should be made online via the relevant grant programme page here. Please be sure to read the guidance note before applying.
