About

The Greenslade Family Foundation was established in 2017 with the aim of helping children and young people living in socially or economically disadvantaged communities across the UK. We believe every child or young person deserves a chance to be happy and successful. By funding selected charities and projects within education, sport, the arts, healthcare and wellbeing, we hope to give support to those in need and have a positive impact on their future. The Foundation focuses on charities which provide direct aid to these young people.

Application guidance

What is the application process?

To help save organisations time and effort in preparing applications, we first ask for some high level information via an initial application, submitted via our website. If we feel there is alignment with our objectives, we will then ask for a more detailed application and arrange a discussion.

Stage 1: First stage application and review
Stage 2: Detailed application and discussion
Stage 3: Evaluation and decision

What levels of grants are available?

There is not a set limit, however we generally award 2-3 larger grants (up to £50,000) in a calendar year along with a number of smaller donations.

What types of projects are supported?

We consider applications from organisations and projects within the UK who are actively trying to achieve at least one of the following objectives:

  • Improve the lives of young people
  • Provide rehabilitation and opportunities to children or young people who face social exclusion
  • Offer access to educational opportunities (particularly those related to the arts or sport) among socially or economically disadvantaged communities
