Supporting local charities and community causes

Who can apply?

Who can apply.jpg

The main philosophy of Shanly Foundation is to help local good causes. In particular we welcome applicants that are helping to improve the welfare and quality of life of those that are disadvantaged within the community. We also support many local community events and festivals, scouts and girl guides, local schools and sports and social clubs. We only donate to organisations delivering services in the shaded area on the map found here.

Listed below are examples of the type of application the Foundation is happy to receive:

  • Registered charities, particularly those that assist the physically and mentally disabled 
  • The elderly and other members of the local communities that may be disadvantaged through no fault of their own
  • Organisations that help rehabilitate citizens back into local communities
  • Local sports and social clubs
  • Local Rotary and similar community organisations
  • Local scouting and guiding groups
  • Outdoor activity centres for young people
  • Woodland and environmental conservation organisations
  • Social and community events; festivals; exhibitions; displays; fetes; galas and concerts that help raise funds to support local good causes

We do not make awards to individuals, for research. We also do not donate to military charities, single faith charities or animal welfare charities. Finally, we cannot accept your application if your organisation has been in existence for less than 12 months.
