Thank you for your interest in The Rank Foundation. Our funding streams are only for the benefit of UK residents in UK communities. We do not accept overseas applications.
Our executive directors are active in identifying initiatives to support our focus areas and the majority of funds available for major grants are already committed through our proactive programme. However, we continue to run a small grants programme for unsolicited appeals – further details of this are given below.
This is our small funding stream for only UK registered charities and recognised churches which are raising money for projects where the total cost is less than £1million. If you are raising money for a particular project for which the mainstay is capital costs (building work, refurbishment or the purchase of long-term equipment) or a one-off short term activity (such as an annual respite break or holiday for disadvantaged young people) and have already raised a third of the total costs, you may be eligible for this.
We are currently accepting applications for our April 2017 trustees’ meeting.
We do not accept overseas applications.
We do not fund running costs or salaries through our Small Appeals programme.
If you are looking for funding for a particular individual please use the Turn2Us website (please note that this is an external website, which has no connection to The Rank Foundation). Please note that we cannot accept applications from hospices, as this work is covered by our annual grant to Hospice UK – if you would like to apply to them, please do so directly.
