Thank you for your interest in the Rank Foundation. Our funding streams are only for the benefit of UK residents in UK communities. We do not accept overseas applications.
Our executive directors are active in identifying initiatives to support our focus areas and the majority of funds available for major grants are already committed through our proactive programme. However, we continue to run a small grants programme for unsolicited appeals – grants for this do not exceed £7.5K. Further details of this are given below.
Is our small funding stream for only UK registered charities and recognised churches which are raising money for projects which are costed at under £1million. If you are raising money for a particular project for which the mainstay is capital costs (building work, refurbishment or the purchase of long-term equipment) or a one-off short term activity (such as an annual respite break or holiday for disadvantaged young people) and have already raised a third of the total costs, you may be eligible for this.
- We can only accept applications from charities with an annual income of less than £500,000.This fund is focused on smaller charities that may not be covered by our larger programmes.
- Please make sure that you have raised a third of your total costs before making an application. If you have raised less than this, we will not be able to consider your application.
