Please read our guidelines fully before pursuing an application



Please read our guidelines fully before considering an application as we only fund charities that meet our eligibility criteria. We welcome pre-application enquiries.

We have recently moved to an online application process but will continue to accept paper copies up to 30th June 2020. To make an application, you will need to provide more detail about the charity, its activities, finances and the grant request. To help you plan your responses, please refer to this summary for a list of the questions we ask.

To access our online portal for the first time you will need to register. If you are already registered with the Yapp Hub, log in with your username and password to either start a new application or resume completing an existing one.
