Apply for a grant from the Veterans’ Foundation

If you represent a charity or an organisation that provide assistance to serving and former members of the British Armed Forces who are in need, you can apply for a grant from the Veterans’ Foundation. Grants are also available to operationally qualified seafarers and their dependants. Since mid-2016, the Veterans’ Foundation has given over £8 million in grants via 480+ grants to more than 270 unique organisations across the United Kingdom.

You can apply for a grant from the Veterans’ Foundation through our online platform. Before telling us about your charity or project please read our guidance.

Please note that the Veterans’ Foundation’s trustees are more likely to award grants to low and medium wealth organisations rather than ‘wealthy’ ones. They will consider a range of factors including the service or item being funded, the number of beneficiaries, the importance of the grant to the applicant organisation, the efficiency of the organisation, need of the beneficiaries and its urgency.
