Funding brief: The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation funds organizations in UK that are working to influence policy, attitudes and values at a national or international level. These may be single issue groups working to achieve a particular change, or organizations with a broader remit.  We give particular consideration to small pioneering headquarters organizations.

They only support practical projects when they are clearly of a pioneering nature, with potential for influencing UK national policy.

Work outside the UK (unless it is of international focus)
Grants to individuals
Travel bursaries (including overseas placements & expeditions)
Academic research
Capital projects (e.g. building projects or purchase of nature reserves)
Community or local practical projects (except innovative projects for widespread application)
Youth work, youth training and youth camps

How to apply:
Before you apply: If you are an organisation that is new to PPCF, they would encourage you to get in touch with the Trust Secretary for an informal discussion about your work prior to submitting your application. This can often help organisations to decide whether PPCF is the right funder for them, or what aspects of their work would be most likely to attract PPCF funding, thus saving time and effort. Please send her an email at: or use the website’s contact page to arrange a convenient time to talk.
