The UIA Charitable Foundation is a small-grant-making trust, established to provide financial support to organisations that help people in need. Grants of up to £1,000 are available.
The Foundation supports small organisations or groups where their grants will make a real difference and which deal with:
• Third World human rights
• Third World poverty
• Victims of domestic abuse
• Victims of drug and alcohol addiction
• Rehabilitation of offenders
Committee meetings are usually held twice a year, in February and September. The trustees will only consider applications submitted on the Foundation's application form and operate on a first come first served basis.
Applications should reach the company no later than the beginning of January or August, however the receipt of an application does not guarantee that it will be considered at the next meeting. The Committee may ask for more information and may take up references.
Next deadline: Beginning of August 2011
