Help for organisations
Registered charities and not-for-profit organisations can apply directly to CSIS Charity Fund for financial support.
To be eligible, your organisation should be wholly or partly devoted to offering assistance to civil and public servants and their families. Examples of eligible bodies might be housing associations, welfare or benevolent funds, and retirement or bereavement support groups.
Our downloadable Grant Giving Policy is a valuable document for potential applicants, giving details of:
- our priorities;
- the funds available;
- type of projects sought;
- type of grants we will pay;
- general conditions we set on grants;
- the Fund’s procedures; and
- timetable for considering and authorising grants.
For your reference you will also see details of our past grant giving to a wide range of bodies in the Our Finances section on this site which can be seen at a glance here. More than £5 million has been given to good causes by the Fund since it was transferred into a new charitable company in 2008.
If you wish to apply for grant aid, contact the Fund’s Secretary, Helen Harris, on 01622 766963 or via firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Our most recent Impact Report may also be of use to potential applicants. As well as containing a financial summary of grants, it shows the wide range and scope of our grant giving, and contains heart-warming case studies explaining how our funding has enabled organisations to improve the lives of individuals.
Among the broad range of charities and organisations we support is our main partner organisation, the Charity for Civil Servants – a relationship which began more than 100 years ago. Find out more about how we support them here.
