How To Apply

The Foundation operates an open, rolling application process throughout the year but there are key dates when funding decisions are made.

There is a three-stage application process:

  • Firstly, organisations need to complete an eligibility quiz and will receive an instant on-screen decision telling them if their organisation is eligible to apply.

  • Organisations then submit an initial application form containing basic organisation details and information about their programme. They will receive a decision by email within six weeks.

  • If the organisation is shortlisted, they are invited to complete a detailed full application form. This full application form must be submitted by 9 November 2020 for a decision by 31 December 2020.

A Grants Prospectus and FAQ document are available on the Youth Futures Foundation website.

The eligibility checker and initial application form are to be completed through the Foundation’s Online Grants Portal.
