Grants to schools, organisations and other groups
Our grantmaking priorities:
- Assisting schools and other groups to purchase equipment for the benefit of children.
- Supporting extra curricula activities (e.g. school trips, after school clubs, holiday clubs, uniformed organisations) for children and young people.
- Assisting organisations which provide educational opportunities to schools and colleges in the Borough of Southwark (e.g. visiting theatre companies and musicians).
We will usually visit organisations to ensure that the scheme is viable. However, with only £100,000 a year to give in grants, it is unlikely that we will ever fully support a project, and involvement of other grant-giving bodies is usually needed.
We are unable to guarantee continuing support to projects, and for this reason, are unwilling to take responsibility for funding the cost of salaries and administration.
