Rank Foundation Pebble Grants for capital costs and short breaks
The Rank Foundation’s Pebble Grants programme is accepting applications from UK registered charities and recognised churches for its January 2020 trustees’ meeting.
The programme is targeted at smaller charities with an annual income of less than £500,000.
What can be funded?
Applicants should be 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.
Advice from the funder:
Please note that we do not publish deadlines or maximum amounts as this is dependent on the number of applications we receive. The most commonly donated amount is £1,000.
The capital costs application form is for fixed, one-time expenses incurred on the purchase of land, buildings, construction, and equipment. The short break application form is targeted towards respite breaks for children or adults, and short term activities or programmes.
