The Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives and wellbeing of ordinary people throughout Greater Lincolnshire. We seek to achieve our mission through building long-term endowment, grant making, social investment, advice and practical support: we listen, convene, collaborate, co-create, and fund.
We pride ourselves in being accessible to representatives from those groups interested in applying for a grant. We would encourage potential applicants to get in touch with us before applying so we can assist and advise on the best course of action, as we may be able to signpost to other potential funders and opportunities too.
Our process is straight forward, but we are always willing to learn from those organisations we serve and welcome all feedback whether or not you are successful in securing funding from us.
