Main Grants Fund "John Lyon's Charity"

How Do I Apply?

We operate a two stage application process, which is started by a proposal letter.

If this letter is positively assessed, then you will be invited to submit a Stage Two Application Form. We do not send application forms out on request and they cannot be downloaded from this website. You should note that it takes at least six months for the application process to be completed, so please bear in mind when your project is due to take place and apply in plenty of time. You should also bear in mind the minimum requirements that you should meet before making an application to us.

There is no maximum grant amount but you should apply only for what you need, supported by your budget. Grants are monitored on an annual basis and after 12 months for one-off grants.

For Main Grants there is a two stage application process. Please click here for information on how to apply for a grant. Please note, the Application Form is not available to download from this website.

All eligible organisations are free to apply to the Main Grants Fund, however, it may be necessary for the Charity to recommend applying to another Fund if more appropriate, the Small Grants Fund for example.
