Funding opportunities

Listed here are funding initiatives that schools can access for work on their grounds or for educational projects.  The majority of these funders will also provide money for projects that are not in schools, as long as they fall within the remit of their funding priorities.

The information includes the name of the funder, name of the grants programme (where applicable), grant details and contact details for the funder.  Contact details are those that were provided  by the funder and therefore where there is only a telephone number, or only an address, this is the method by which they must be contacted.  They are listed in alphabetical order, according to the name of the funder.*

Grant details are correct at the time of collation, apologies for any changes that have occurred in the interim.

*MEEN does not take any responsibility for the ethical position of these funders.
