The funding is intended for strategic work, including policy work, campaigning and research, which has the potential to improve financial wellbeing at a national scale. The Foundation is interested in funding projects that examine and promote measures to:

  • Increase incomes for those on low-to-middle incomes.
  • Ensure people have an adequate safety net, building savings and assets.
  • Reduce the cost of living, making sure those on lower incomes are not paying more.
  • Address issues related to spending and borrowing, particularly where it becomes problematic.

Organisations that are undertaking charitable activities can apply and the Foundation welcomes applications from a wide range of organisations, including registered charities, voluntary organisations, think tanks, campaigning groups, research bodies and universities.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 1pm on 4 February 2022.
