Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales – We Fund Core Costs
In 2013, Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales has £20m to give to charities that help disadvantaged people to play a fuller role in the community.
In Wales, the Foundation funds a wide range of charitable causes, including debt advice services, support for disability groups, carers support, and advocacy services. In 2012, we awarded £1,250,000 to 80 charities in Wales. Unlike many other grant makers, 70% of our funding goes towards core costs such as salaries, overheads, rent and project costs.
If your charity is registered with the Charity Commission, is helping disadvantaged people and you have 12 months of reserves or less, then the Foundation wants to hear from you. Visit the website www.lloydstsbfoundations.org.uk, have a look at the funding guidelines and complete the eligibility questionnaire. It only takes ten minutes and it will tell you instantly if your charity would be eligible for funding.
“We were recently awarded a grant for the salary of an Employment Officer to help our beneficiaries find job opportunities, write CVs and hone their interview skills. This position is key to the future of the charity’s employment programme and would not be possible without the willingness of Lloyds TSB Foundation to fund this core cost. Their understanding of our needs and flexibility towards our grant has been so refreshing.”
