Esmée Fairbairn South West Foundation Small Grant Programme Reopens

The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation is running the 7th Year of its small grant programme in the South West Region, through South West Foundation. The  small grant programme is for grants up to £1,000. The grant programme is specifically aimed at small charitable community groups with an annual turnover of less than £25,000. You do not need to be a registered charity. 80% of the organisations that we fund through this programme are not registered in any way.
You may have a good idea for a community group  that is needed  in your local area community, but you may not yet be established. If you are at this stage and you would like to talk to us about your idea we would be pleased to hear from you and we can advise you what you would need to have in place before we can consider allocating a grant.
The programme gives priority to small groups in rural areas, market and coastal towns but also considers applications from under-represented groups in the more urban areas.
For more information and an application form please contact Jan or Jill at South West Foundation on 01373 813088 or email us on
