Rank Foundation, Pebble Grants

1st November 2018

The Rank Foundation’s Pebble Grants programme offers small grants for UK registered charities and recognised churches that are raising money for projects where the total cost is less than £1million.

The funder does not publish maximum or minimum grant amounts. “The most commonly donated amount is £1,000.”

What can be funded?

“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.”

Eligibility criteria

Please ensure you meet all the criteria before making an application:

  • UK registered charity
  • Annual income under £500,000
  • Project takes place in the UK
  • Not a hospice or mainstream school


The funder is currently accepting applications for its January 2019 trustees’ meeting. There is no published deadline so apply as soon as possible. The fund is likely to close once it has received sufficient applicants. Applications are accepted once a year.

Read full details of the fund then complete the application form that applies to your project; application form for capital or application form for short breaks.
