Applying for a grant from the Veterans’ Foundation

The Veterans’ Foundation provides grants to eligible organisations that provide assistance to serving and former members of the armed forces community, operational qualified seafarers and their immediate families.

We have recently updated our Grant Application process, including a new online platform, and revised guidance, eligibility criteria and application form. Before applying for a grant, please read our guidance carefully to check that your organisation and project are eligible, even if you have received funding from us before.

Please note that the Veterans’ Foundation's trustees are more likely to award grants to small and medium sized organisations rather than larger ones. The trustees will consider a range of factors including the projects or items being funded, the number of beneficiaries, the importance of the grant to the applicant organisation, the efficiency of the organisation and need of the beneficiaries.

How to apply

Please read our Guidance for Applicants, What We Will Not Fund, and Application Form Questions to learn more about applying for a grant from the Veterans' Foundation.
