What we can’t fund

Unfortunately, there are certain things that we can’t fund as a foundation. These are:

  • Organisations which are not registered charities
  • Individual requests
  • Sponsorship request
  • Animal welfare
  • Environmental charities
  • International appeals
  • Expeditions or overseas travel
  • The promotion of religion. We might not exclude charities which have a religious element, if their objectives demonstrate a wider benefit to people experiencing disadvantage schools and colleges (except for projects that will benefit disadvantaged students and are clearly additional to statutory responsibilities)
  • Capital projects
  • Purchase of vehicles
  • Activities which are the responsibility of a statutory body or the islands’ governments
  • Activities which duplicate or overlap a service already provided
  • Applications for salaries which would apply to the applicant
  • Charities which have received one of our grants in the previous 12 months or have received three years continuous funding

We cannot fund any charities that do not benefit residents of the Channel Islands.
