The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation (PPCF) is currently accepting applications from UK organisations to fund projects that promote peace and sustainable security and environmental sustainability.
The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation is a grant giving trust with Quaker family roots in the United Kingdom with an aim to contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability. In order to do this, it supports projects that seek to influence values and attitudes, promote equity and social justice, and develop radical alternatives to current economic and social structures. PPCF supports work in following areas:
- Peace and Sustainable Security: Development of ways of resolving violent conflicts peacefully, and of addressing their underlying causes.
- Environmental Sustainability: Work that addresses the pressures and conditions that risk global environmental breakdown.
Size of grant
Most grants are between £5,000 and £15,000 per year, for up to three years. PPCF usually support organisations for whom this would represent between 5% and 50% of their annual income (organisations with an annual income of between £10,000 and £300,000 approximately).
