To help people build their confidence and self-esteem, and to contribute to the improvement of their mental health by financially supporting projects and individuals directly
Take a look at some of the projects we are currently supporting across the UK
OUR GRANT APPLICATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
We will be reopening our grant application form as of October 2020.
We offer grants of between £100 and £3000 to small grassroots community projects and individuals who build confidence and self esteem, and improve mental health and self development in their local communities.
With 16 UK Regions, we cover every postcode in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Money that is donated to The 401 Foundation by our supporters is allocated back into the region it originally comes from, meaning our supporters are funding projects local to them in their communities.
UPDATED ANNOUNCEMENT ON 12TH JUNE 2020
For the last two years we have split income 50/50 between operations and grant pots. We have suspended this commitment for a period of 6 months to the end of November 2020 to help us manage the downturn in the charity sector due to COVID-19. We will restore this 50/50 split on 1st December 2020. Our aim is to take this to a 85/15 split toward grant pots by 2025 along with a change from regional grants pots to county pots by 2025 as well. if you have any questions or concerns pleas eon;t hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
