BlueSpark Foundation supports the education and development of children and young people (aged 5-22 years) by providing grants for educational, cultural, sporting and other projects. Of particular interest are projects that will help enhance self-confidence, team working skills and future employability.
It supports relatively small-scale projects that might not happen at all, or would only happen on a lesser scale, without its support. Most projects are likely to be initiated by schools, community groups, clubs, societies or other non-profit organisations, but individuals may also apply.
The funding can be for physical assets (such as iPads, sports equipment, or lighting for stage productions) or for services or facilities (such as sports coaching or music or drama tuition) or simply for the provision of experiences (such as theatre visits).
These examples are intended to be illustrative and not restrictive as to the funding which BlueSpark may provide to support projects. Applications can be submitted at any time and must be made online on BlueSpark Foundation’s standard application Form.
Typically up to £5,000. VCSE/education/other. No deadline.
