Please read the respective information about each core area and the outlined criteria.

Grant Application

If you would like to submit a request, please use the ‘Grant Application Form’ which can be found in the box on the right hand side, and adhere to all necessary requirements.

The Foundation Board meeting takes place four times a year, during which grant applications are reviewed.
