Grant Programmes


We have two grant programmes that are open to applications:


We are currently receiving an extremely high number of applications for both programmes. In the last funding round we were only able to offer funding to 12% of the applications we received. Before you start an application please ensure you check our eligibility criteria and refer to the funding priorities summarised on each grant programme page.


How much you can apply for

For each programme there are two different types of grant:

  • Small grants: up to £5,000
  • Major grants: £5,001 - £30,000


You should use the same initial application form to apply for both small and major grants, but the assessment process is different:

  • For a small grant you will only be asked to complete the initial application form.
  • For a major grant you may also be asked to complete a second stage and provide further details about your organisation’s governance and finances.


Major grants:

  • All charities and CASCs seeking a major grant should apply to PHF directly.

Small grants: 

  • We prioritise applications from organisations with a turnover of up to £500,000
    • Projects in Surrey - Surrey charities and CASCs seeking small grants should apply directly to the Community Foundation Surrey which manages these grants for PHF Any applications PHF receives for small grants in Surrey will be transferred to the Community Foundation Surrey.
    • Projects anywhere else in the UK - Charities and CASCs seeking small grants for projects to be delivered outside of Surrey should apply to PHF directly.
