Once you send an idea to us, we will review it and get back to you in a couple of weeks. If it’s something we could fund, we will ask you to fill out a full application form.
We will review your full application internally with our team, and may ask you to make updates to give it the best chance of success when it goes to the committee. That application then goes to a decision-making committee, made up of Trust and Charity staff.
Evelina Fund decision-making committees meet 4 times a year. You could get an idea funded in as little as 3 months but this depends on whether we have further questions about your application, Charity capacity, and whether specific fundraising to support your idea is needed.
If you’re asked to fill out a full application form, you’ll be asked to give us the contact details of the manager (who should be a member of your DMT) and finance officer who will approve your application.
You should make them aware of your project before finishing your full application form.
We’ll get in touch with them to make sure the project has their approval.
Get in touch with your line manager if you are unsure who this is for you.
If you are awarded, you will be asked to sign an offer letter and its terms and conditions.
