We have adopted a new funding strategy and approach in 2018 to help us support long-term social change more effectively.
Our new approach is pro-active – we no longer run grant rounds, and we cannot respond to unsolicited applications, pitches or requests for funding from organisations.
You can read more about how and why we developed our strategy here.

Working Together More Fund
The Working Together More Fund accepts applications from groups working together collaboratively. Please read their website for more details, and contact their co-ordinator if you have questions. The Todd Foundation is proud to be a supporter of this fund, along with the Tindall Foundation, JR McKenzie Trust, the Hugh Green Foundation, and DV Bryant Trust.
There are many funders who do run application processes. We suggest you use the givUS database to find funders which are the best fit for your organisation. This can be accessed free of charge through many public libraries.
