Waterloo Foundation - FAQ

Funds for NGOs

Activities: Others


What are the timescales for applications to be reviewed?

We aim to undertake a first review of all new applications within 2-3 months of submission.  If your funding application is unsuccessful we will let you know as soon as we can after this first review.  If your funding application is able to be taken forward to be reviewed in more detail, we will then contact you to discuss it further.  It usually takes around 6 months between the submission of an application and a decision to provide a grant, so please consider this when submitting an application.

Who can apply for funding?

We prioritise providing funding support to UK-based charities, many of whom work in close partnership with smaller local NGOs based in the countries in which they operate.

Can I apply if I am from outside the UK?

If you are an organisation based outside of the UK you must send us contact details for a named person who is willing to provide us with a reference for your work.  This must be someone who:

Works for an international NGO with offices in the UK
Works for an organisation that the Foundation has previously given a grant to
Works for an organisation with offices in the UK, which has been a current or former donor to your organisation
Works for an academic institution, think tank or as an independent consultant who is based in the UK, and which has evaluated your organisation.
Ideally, the person you provide as a reference will have visited your organisation and be able to provide feedback on the quality of your work. Please state the name, contact details and your relationship to the referee (i.e. past funder) at the beginning of your application. Only applications with references will be considered.

What size of grants does TWF provide?

We will consider providing one off and multi-annual grants (usually for up to three years).  The majority of our grants in this programme will be for a total of £50,000 - £100,000.

Can I submit more than one proposal, or apply under both Marine and Tropical Rainforests at the same time?

We will only consider one application per organisation at any one time. We therefore recommend that you chose your strongest project proposal and only submit that one.

What type of grants does TWF provide?

The majority of our grants support projects or programmes.  Grants that are predominantly for core costs or unrestricted funding will only be open to organisations which we have previously supported with a grant, and which are invited to apply for this type of funding support.

Are there any types of projects you don’t support?

There are certain types of project for which we are not able to offer funding under each of our programmes:


Projects with animal conservation as the sole focus
Projects focusing on environmental education
Projects based in freshwater fisheries (e.g. Lake Victoria)
Tropical Rainforests:

Tree planting projects
Projects focused solely on the use of fuel-efficient stoves (we have selected one partner to undertake forest-related efficient stove interventions)
Projects with animal conservation as the sole focus
Projects focusing on environmental education
We are currently not accepting proposals for REDD projects, pending a review of projects already funded.
In addition, we will only consider proposals from US-based organisations under exceptional circumstances, due to the higher availability of environmental funding in the US compared to the UK.

I’ve read all the above, and can’t find the answer to my question. How do I contact you?

Please send us an email with your enquiry at and we will endeavour to respond to you within a few days. If your query is more urgent, please call the office on 02920 838980.
