Welcome to Bentley’s Advancing Life Chances Small Grants Programme.
Through our grants programme we will support charitable organisations that help communities in 19 locations across the UK. This localised approach has been selected to maximise the impact of the programme, allowing grants to improve outcomes for communities in multiple and intersecting ways and amplifying the impact in each area.
Please review our Bentley Advancing Life Chances Small Grants Policy and the further information on eligibility below, before considering applying.
We will work in partnership with the Charities Aid Foundation to deliver our financial giving programme, who ensure that all organisations we support are charitable and that we accurately record our social impact.
Grants must be spent within 12 months of award. Applications for the Bentley Advancing Life Chances Small Grants Programme will be considered on a quarterly basis.
In response to the challenging environment that smaller charities are operating in and reflecting Bentley’s aim to maximise the impact of its grants, the Advancing Life Chances Small Grants programme is restricted to organisations with an annual income of less than £1m.
By clicking on the link below you will be redirected to the online application form hosted by our partners, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). Please note that we have an allocated budget for each funding round. This may mean a decision needs to be taken to close the application process before the stated date. This is to ensure that applicants have a reasonable chance of success. We therefore advise all potential applicants to apply at their earliest convenience before the deadline for each funding round. If a funding round has been closed due to demand, notice will be confirmed on the CAF application page. You can find out more about CAF
