FAQs

How long will it take to process my application?

The initial application form is exactly the same, but it is processed differently. Applications for below £2,000 are reviewed monthly. Applications for over £2,000 are reviewed every quarter.

Which areas do you accept applications from?

We generally tend to support organisations around the Tyneside and South Northumberland area, however if you do fall slightly outside of here then we may still be interested in your application.

Can I apply for more than one grant within a year?

Please note that we do not currently award multiple year grants for those under £2,000.

Can individuals apply?

No, only applications from organisations or groups will be considered.

How can I contact you?

We encourage projects to contact us in advance of submitting applications. If you have any queries or require further clarity about whether you are eligible to apply, get in touch with us at enquiries@lga-foundation.org

How do I submit my photo for the competition?

The Trustees love nothing more than seeing the fun photo entries to our monthly competition. Just submit the most exciting photos with our poster featured by the last day of every month for the chance to win £50 for your project. Don’t forget, even if you aren’t a winner that month, you are welcome to enter again as many times as you like.  We also have some repeat winners too. Just email your photos to us at enquiries@lga-foundation.org
