Funding to Projects that Promote Social Justice, Nonviolence and Environmental Sustainability (UK)

The next closing date for applications to the Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation is midnight on the 28th February 2020. 

Grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 per year are available to registered charities in the UK for projects that contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to non violence and environmental sustainability.  Grants can be for up to three years.  

The Foundation's priority is to address systemic threats by seeking to change policy and attitudes at a national or European level. The Foundation also supports organisations or projects that are not UK registered charities if they can indicate a UK registered charity that is able to receive funds on their behalf.  Priority will be given to small, pioneering organisations with an income of between 10,000 and £500,000. 

Previous projects supported include:

  • Conflicts Forum which received a grant of £24,000 over three years to promote understanding between the Western and Muslim worlds by challenging attitudes, values and ideologies that promote conflict.
  • Airport Watch which received a grant of £15,000 over two years to educate UK policy-makers about the dangerously unsustainable growth and levels of air freight to the environment and communities, and the influences and interests that lie behind them.
