Grants will only be awarded to projects or programs being run by established charitable bodies and will not be awarded to individuals.
Applications must be submitted in writing using the Sasha Foundation grant application form which can be downloaded here. They can be submitted by email or by post to the Foundation’s accountants, Richardson Swift.
At minimum, the trustees will meet twice a year to consider applications: the associate deadlines each year for submitting applications are 01/04 and 01/10. In assessing applications they will follow the processes set out in the Sasha Foundation Grant Making Policy, which can be downloaded here.
Typically grants will be up to £10,000 and at most will be for 50% of the total budgeted cost of the proposed project/program.
Applications must set out the expected outcomes from the project/program, how outcomes will be assessed and how they will be reported back to the Sasha Foundation trustees.
The trustees are empowered to solicit applications from charitable organisations that they are aware off and which operate in areas relevant to the Foundations objectives. They will also short list and assess unsolicited applications for support.
Any attempt by an applicant to approach the trustees directly to solicit support for or influence the assessment of a specific application will most likely result in the application being rejected.
Other than notifying them of their decision, the trustees will not enter into any correspondence or discussion with applicants with respect to any decision not to support a grant application.
