We fund legally constituted organisations undertaking charitable work in the UK. While the majority of grant recipients will be charities, we can also fund limited companies (including CICs) and private law firms for activities that advance the LEF’s charitable objects and are not profit-making.
Applications can include all costs related to achieving the hoped-for outcomes, including staffing, volunteer expenses, consultancy, travel, venue hire and a reasonable contribution to overheads. We mostly fund revenue costs but can cover modest capital expenditure directly related to the work, such as a computer for a new staff member.
If you already have a grant from LEF, and would like to apply for additional funding, please ask advice from your grants manager in the first instance.
