*During these unprecedented times, we are now having to operate slightly differently. For the foreseeable future, The Johnson Foundation will be concentrating help and support with the Humanitarian fund organised by Wirral Council. For the duration of this crisis, all other new applications will be put on hold. We would politely ask that you wait to submit your application form. Thank you.*
The Foundation supports UK registered charities working specifically within the Liverpool City Region in the areas of Welfare, Youth, Community, Arts, Education and Health.
The Foundation has an open application process, you do not need to know anyone or be ‘invited’ to apply – as long as you are not currently in receipt of a grant from us nor have applied to us within the last year, you are eligible to apply if you are one of the following;
What we fund?
The Foundation awards grants for both capital and activity expenditure, but there are some things we do not provide funding for.
What we do not fund
We are not able to support:
Organisations with liquid reserves (net current assets plus investments) covering more than 12 months’ expenditure are unlikely to receive a grant unless they can make an exceptionally convincing case that they are in financial need.
The application process
There are no specific deadlines for applications and our trustees hold regular meetings throughout the year. To keep things simple, we have a one-stage process which typically takes around four months from submitting your application to receiving a decision. Reading our guidelines thoroughly and including all the information we request will ensure that the process is as speedy as possible for you. As part of getting to know you, during the process you will be visited by representatives of the Foundation.
How to send the form to us
Please send us your application form by email to email@example.com We will send you an acknowledgement email to confirm that we have received your application.
We reserve the right to ask organisations any questions to help us during the selection process and to ask organisations to revise their proposal before a final decision is taken.
You only need to send us extra information if we specifically ask you to.
