Who we are

Who can apply for a grant?

Any small charities or community groups operating within reach of our branch network can apply. We don't donate to charities or community groups with an annual income in excess of £250,000.

Priority is given to groups or activites aimed at improving the quality of life and opportunities in communities affected by disadvantage, deprivation and social exclusion. 

So that we can support as many charities as possible we don't offer large sums. In exceptional circumstances, we may offer up to £2,000. However, the grants tend to be smaller than this.

How to apply for a grant

To apply for a grant, choose the area closest to where your charity operates from the table at the bottom of this page and click on the relevant link. This will take you to the Community Foundation website for your area. From here, you'll be able to find out more about your local Community Foundation and all the information that you'll need to apply for a grant.

If you have any queries about the application process, please contact your local Community Foundation directly.

How your application will be assessed

The grants’ panel from each Community Foundation meets at least four times a year to consider applications. The panel will consider your application to see if, in their opinion, it meets the objectives of the Coventry Building Society Charitable Foundation. All applications will be acknowledged.

Unfortunately it may not always be possible to support all applications even if they fully meet the Coventry Building Society Foundation's criteria. We reserve the right to allocate our funds as best judged by the local Community Foundations.
