What we don’t fund

We regret that in most circumstances, we are not able to fund:

  • Individuals – unless they are made as part of our ‘Grants to Individuals’ Programme
  • Statutory bodies and anything deemed to be the responsibility of the State
  • Nurseries, schools and colleges
  • Hospitals and health authorities
  • Medical care, medical equipment or medical research
  • Academic research, scholarships or bursaries
  • Animal charities
  • The promotion of religion
  • The restoration or conservation of buildings
  • Annual or one-off events and festivals
  • Work outside of Kent
  • Endowment appeals
  • Work that has already taken place i.e. retrospective funding
  • Round-robin, widely circulated appeals
  • National charities without a base or planned project within Kent or Medway – unless applying to our Investing in Rehabilitation fund
