How to apply

Please note that applications are currently closed and will re-open on Saturday, April 1, 2023.

Please ensure that you understand who we fund and who we are not able to fund before applying.

We receive many applications from worthy causes, far more than we can possibly fund. Please be aware that although your application may well fit within our objects it is not always possible to support your application.

Due to the large number of applications we receive we have restricted our funding geographically to the South and South East of the UK.

Please do not apply if you have received a donation in the previous 2 years.

If you are applying for funding for a South African charity please visit the "How to apply" page on the Jim Joel Fund website.

When to apply

Our Directors meet twice a year to determine which charities are granted funds.

The Application Form is available from 1 April 2023 closing on 30 April at midnight (for our July 2023 meeting) and 1 October 2023 closing at midnight on 31 October 2023 (for our January 2024 meeting). The application form can be saved throughout this period.

After the meeting, applicants that have been put forward for consideration will be informed of the funding outcome within two weeks.

A charity who writes to us outside of these dates will not be contacted or considered for funding.
