Funding to support education in disadvantaged areas (deadline 27th August 2018)

The British & Foreign School Society gives grants to charities for educational activities.

Grants are given to organisations with UK charitable status and are for the purpose of advancing educational opportunity in the UK and developing countries.

The British & Foreign Schools Society (BFSS) normally makes grants for educational projects totaling about £600,000 in any one year. The majority (85% of grants) are made to charities and educational bodies (with charitable status). Schools wishing to apply need to have either charitable status or “exempt charity” status.

Applications from charitable organisations which meet the grant criteria are initially reviewed by the BFSS office, and may then be submitted to the Grants Committee, which normally meets three times a year.

The next Grants Committee meeting will be held in October 2018, and the closing date for applications is the end of Monday, 27th August 2018.
