Call for proposals – The Apollo (Sutton) Foundation is now accepting applications!

We are delighted to announce that we will be launching a new grant-making Trust – The Apollo (Sutton) Foundation – during Fundraising Convention 2019.

The first grants through our ‘Small Grants programme’ will be made during this year’s Fundraising Convention. The Foundation is now accepting applications.

The Foundation has been established to support charitable organisations across the UK. In line with the founders’ interests, the Foundation has a particular interest in supporting charities who help their beneficiaries to “live their best lives”.

Grants of up to £500 are available through the Small Grants Programme. To apply, please send a proposal (no more than 4 pages) to by 5pm on Monday 10th June.

(NB: There is a limit to the number of applications we can consider during the first Trustee meeting. Should we receive more applications than we can consider, priority will be given to applications received earliest).

Applications will be reviewed “live” by our Trustees during the Life on the Other Side of the Fence session. This will take place in the Fountain Room at the Barbican at 9.15am on Wednesday 3 July.
