Aims/priorities: The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation is a grant giving trust with Quaker family roots in the United Kingdom. The Foundation aims to contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability. The priority is to address systemic threats by seeking to change policy and attitudes at a national or European level. In order to do this, in the limited areas described below projects are supported that seek to influence values and attitudes, promote equity and social justice, and develop radical alternatives to current economic and social structures. The foundation funds:
- Peace and Sustainable Security – the development of ways of resolving violent conflicts peacefully, and of addressing their underlying causes
- Environmental Sustainability – work that addresses the pressures and conditions that risk global environmental breakdown
Who can apply? The foundation supports the work of UK registered charitable NGOs and support organisations or projects that are not UK registered charities if they can indicate a UK registered charity that is able to receive funds on their behalf.
Grant amount: Grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 per year, for up to three years are available
