The Sir John Fisher Foundation Giving grants to charitable organisations.


and more...

There is no general limit to the grant which can be awarded to any one project. Most grants given are for less than £20,000. In the past, the Trustees have given larger grants to major one-off projects or for research projects over defined periods.

The Trustees are in appropriate cases willing to express an intention to commit funds for up to three years, if it can be shown that substantial benefit will result from an extended period of funding. An intention to commit funds for future years is always subject to funds being available at the time.

The Foundation gives priority to applying its income to projects and causes based in Barrow-in-Furness and the Furness Peninsula. Exceptionally, occasional community projects from the remainder of Cumbria and North Lancashire will be considered. Some projects are supported nationally, particularly Maritime projects and a few educational Music projects.
