To Apply 

Before considering applying to the Pupkewitz Foundation, we recommend first visiting the relevant pages in the Our Work section to explore our current strategies. Also read the following information about eligibility carefully. In certain situations, when project proposals offer opportunities to advance the goals of multiple teams, those teams will jointly fund the request for support.


Please do the following BEFORE applying:

Write your funding proposal – this should be a maximum of 10 sides of A4 including your budget and fundraising plan, grant evaluation plan, and any other relevant information, and save either as a Word document or PDF. We require all your information to be within this one document – we cannot accept appendices. Our guidelines outline all of the information that we require.

Ensure you have a copy of your organisation’s latest audited accounts. If you are a small charity and not required to produce audited accounts, please provide your annual budget (with income and expenditure).

Have your bank details ready to submit.  We will need the name of your organisation’s bank account, account number and branch code.  

We will require a recent copy of your organisation’s bank statement (i.e. issued within the last three months).  The bank statement should clearly show the date, account name, account number, and branch code.
