All recipients of a Foundation grant are required to supply a detailed report on their project, including photographs where possible.

If appropriate, details and photographs of the event may be posted on the Foundation website together with a link to your organisation’s website.
Please email your application as a single PDF file to and ensure the name of your organisation is clearly stated in the PDF file name.
