About the Grant Search Tool

What is a grant?

Charitable funds often give financial help to people in need who qualify for their help in the form of a grant.
This may be a sum of money, given as a gift or award, so it doesn't have to be paid back. Grants can be given as money, products or services.

Charitable funds are run by grant-giving charities to give grants to people in financial need.

In most cases, charitable funds have been set up to assist people in financial need who have something in common.

See the Turn2us guide: About charitable funds and grants for more information

What is a charitable fund?

Charitable funds give grants to people in financial need who meet their eligibility criteria, using a sum of money that the grant-giving charity has set aside for this purpose.

Some charitable funds also provide other kinds of support and services to the people who they help.
