Do you have a project that you need funding for? Can we help?

Whether you are a charity, organisation or independent project, anybody within the greater Exeter area can apply for a project grant from the Exeter Foundation.

There are three basic guidelines that the Foundation Trustees adhere to when considering all applications:-

• The project must be located within the Greater Exeter area and must enhance the local area and the local community within it.

• The project must be tangible (i.e. for equipment or something that can be used again and again to benefit many people rather than paying for man hours)

• The project must be able to demonstrate at least one of the following aims of the Foundation, to assist the community in enhancing the future prosperity of the area:- Relief of poverty, the advancement of education, (including training for employment or work), the care of the elderly, sick or infirm, the support of disadvantaged children and families, the promotion of physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of individuals, and any other charitable purpose for the benefit of the community within the area of Exeter, East-Devon and Mid-Devon.

NB: The Exeter Chiefs Foundation are not able to sponsor challenges or individuals. 

Please note that, as the main purpose of the Exeter Chiefs Foundation is to support other charities, organisations or groups that are, largely, self-funded through altruistic endeavours, we are unable to approve applications from educational establishments or PTA committee's. 

If you would like to apply please download the application form below and return with relevant documentation to

Once we have received this back from you, it will be presented to the Trustees at their next meeting (meetings are held on a bi-monthly basis), and you will be notified thereafter as to whether or not your application has been successful.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
