About charitable funds and grants

In this section, you can learn more about how charitable funds work and the support, including grants, that they give to people in financial need.

What is a charitable fund?

Charitable funds give grants to people in financial need who meet their eligibility criteria, using a sum of money that the grant-giving charity that has set aside for this purpose.

They are run by charities or organisations (such as energy companies) that have grant giving as part of their aims and objectives.

Although some grant-giving charities have only one fund, others run several funds that give money for different purposes.
