Westhill generally consider applications for grants requiring investment of between £1,000 and £20,000. Larger sums for projects running over two years are also considered but we would advise that you seek match funding in such cases.
Please remember that Westhill’s primary focus is on providing financial investment and other resources to support formal and informal religious education projects and faith-motivated activities that enable people to transform their lives and the life of their communities.
Applicants are required to put forward ideas in a simple and concise way, supported by a budget using our standard application form (click here to ask us to send a form to you). A successful application will show achievable step by step planned outcomes towards a final goal and show what funds are required to secure each stage. Your organisation’s up to date accounts and key participants CVs are always welcomed as supporting information.
At Westhill we are always open to new ideas and initiatives but we do not make grants to individuals, respond to general appeals, fund capital projects or contribute towards the cost of ongoing employment of permanent staff.
Most of our grants are to projects in the UK, however, we are able to consider applications for international activities with accountable UK-based partner organisation. We are able to invest in a limited number of these each year, providing they help us achieve our vision. Please contact us to discuss international applications.
