Enquire about funding options

We occasionally have funds available for larger grants, in excess of £5,000, for projects that will deliver significant new growth or development for the applicant organisation.

About our Extraordinary Grants
Our Extraordinary Grant programme runs occasionally throughout the year on a rolling deadline, and is for one-off projects, making a significant difference to the lives of people within Milton Keynes. Extraordinary Grant Projects can run for up to a year. A typical Extraordinary Grant would be in the range of £10-20k. There is no set maximum amount for Extraordinary Grants, limits are dependent upon fund availability. The programme is currently closed but please do get in touch if you have an exceptional project.

About our Large Strategic Grants
Our Large Strategic Grant programme runs once a year, and is for large multi-year strategic projects that will make a significant difference to the organisation and the local community.

Funding for this programme comes from our Margaret Powell Foundation Fund, which supports projects for the benefit of:

  • Frail elderly people;
