The Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation is a long-established independent grant-making charity. Unlike many Foundations and Trusts, it solely supports capital projects, such as new builds, refurbishments, equipment and specialised transport, distributing around £2.5 million a year throughout the charity sector.
Only supporting organisations that are Registered Charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs, they offer three different tiers of grants:
- Small- up to and including £5,000
- Medium- £5,001 to £25,000
- Large- over £25,000
The grants are divided into 4 categories which are: Community, Education, Health and Social Welfare.
Most applications are in the ‘small category’ and make up to 80% of the grants offered in the previous year.
