We are an independent grantmaking foundation supporting charities that make a difference to people, society and the natural world.
Along with many other funders, at John Ellerman Foundation we understand that Covid-19 will have a significant impact on civil society groups, including those we fund and those applying to us for funding.
Our team is still working from home, and so we ask that you contact us via email in the first instance, as our office landlines aren’t enabled for call forwarding and we cannot pick up voicemails.
We are committed to being flexible and supportive to those we fund – which means that we know you might need your funding earlier than agreed, or need to delay writing a progress report, or alter the way in which you deliver your work.
We have also decided that grantees and recent grantees will no longer have to wait a year before applying to us again – providing that you meet our current funding guidelines. This change does not apply to applicants that have applied for our funding unsuccessfully – we ask that you still wait a year since submitting your application before applying to us again. If you would like advice or support on an application then do get in touch.
The meeting room remains unavailable for use by our grantees until further notice.
