1) Objective

The Waterloo Foundation (TWF) is an independent grant-making foundation created in 2007, and based in Cardiff, Wales. The Foundation gives grants to organisations both in the UK and worldwide. They are most interested in projects that help globally particularly in the areas of the disparity of opportunities and wealth and the unsustainable use of the world’s natural resources.

Main Grants are givenin two priority areas: (1) Current Priorities in Sexual and Reproductive health are: improving access to a range of modern contraceptive methods and wider sexual health and reproductive services; and increasing understanding and awareness of, and driving demand for, family planning services; and (2) Current Priorities in Nutrition are: promoting good nutritional practices, with a particular focus on mothers and children during the ‘1000-day window’; providing micronutrients for young children and their mothers and de-worming drugs for young children; and providing micronutrients through food fortification for all.

2) Eligibility

Eligible organisations must have an annual income of over £300,000. They prioritise providing funding support to UK-based charities. If an organisation is based in a developing country, they must send contact details for a named person who is willing to provide them with a reference for the work.

3) Location

Actions can take place worldwide in developing countries with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and occasionally South Asia.

4) Budget

Grant duration is usually between 1-3 years. The majority of their grants in this programme are for a total of over £50,000, although it is unlikely that they will provide grants of over £100,000 per year. They are happy for any grant they provide to be a contribution towards the total programme budget, rather than the whole amount.

5) Application

A proposal can be sent anytime of the year (1-2 sides of A4) via email to applications(a)waterloofoundation.org.uk. It should contain basic information on the organisation, evidence that previous projects have led to successful outcomes and sustained impact, a description of the project or purpose for which you are seeking funding as well as brief project details such as cost, timescales and activities.
