Allen Lane Foundation (UK)



Status: Open to applications


The Allen Lane Foundation funds small registered charities, voluntary groups, and charitable organisations. 

Over a typical year, we make around 150 grants, to a total value of between £750,000 and £800,000.  Maximum grant size is £15,000

While recognising (and being willing to support) on-going, tried and tested projects, we are also particularly interested in unusual, imaginative or pioneering projects which have perhaps not yet caught the public imagination.
