Jaspar Foundation endeavours to support local causes and community initiatives and we offer grants to UK based registered charities and organisations.
Grants can range from a minimum of £500 to a maximum of £3,000. Each application is considered on its own merit. The Foundation funds one-off causes as well as projects that span over a maximum of 3 years.
The Foundation aims to respond to applications within an 8 week period. Please note that the Trustees may request further verifying information before making a decision. If your organisation wishes to apply for a grant, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please read all the criteria before submitting an application.
Who Can Apply
We welcome applications that fall in line with our 5 core sectors – quality education, health & wellbeing, elderly & disabled, homelessness & poverty and emergency relief appeals.
Applications which help to improve the welfare and quality of life of those that are disadvantaged within the community are prioritised.
Listed below are examples of the types of organisations who can apply to Jaspar Foundation:
· Registered charities
· Organisations that help rehabilitate citizens back into local communities
· Social and community aid initiatives in the Harrow/Hillingdon/Northwood/Watford/Ruislip areas that help raise funds to support local causes
We do not make grants to individuals, for research, for rental payments, for purchase of land/buildings or for core costs.
We do not donate to military charities, single faith charities, environmental or animal welfare charities.
We are unable to accept applications from organisations who are less than 12 months old.
Applications are limited to one application in any 9-month window.
Completing The Application
Applications should ensure that there is a specific request for funding, clearly providing an evidence-based proposal for the grant required. It must show the effectiveness of the cause and the impact the proposal/initiative will have.
The application should clearly state the forecasted data on the number of lives impacted. Following the success of the Grant Funding Application, the Foundation requires an updated evidence-based total on the lives impacted by the grantee and also full information on how the funds were utilised. This data is very important to help us complete impact evaluation reports on the grants made.
The Foundation sends out 3, 6 and 12 month monitoring forms to all charities/organisations who have received grant funding. This must be completed and returned to us, to ensure that funds are being utilised for the purpose agreed, targets are met and if any changes to the project/proposal were made together with timescales. We monitor the estimate of the lives impacted versus the actual number of lives impacted for any grant awarded. Please note that this data needs to be accurate and realistic.
Who Assesses The Application
All enquiries and applications are reviewed by the Foundation’s Trustees. Information on the Trustees can be found on our Team & Trustees page.
