How to apply
The Annual Fund has two funding deadlines a year, the next deadline is 29th November 2019. To apply you should read the guidelines carefully and fill in the application form. Please note that we cannot offer funding outside these periods so do plan ahead to avoid disappointment. We do not offer retrospective funding so please only apply for activities that take place after the funding deadline.
We welcome all applications, which meet our criteria. Our strategic focus for the Annual Fund in 2019 is projects that harness the power of reading, writing and story to promote well being.
Funding is available to groups, companies and not-for-profit organisations based in the South West of England to develop literature activity, provided your activity is carried out on a not-for-profit basis. You do not need to be a registered charity to apply. A panel comprised of Literature Works’ staff and trustees assess all applications.
We are looking for high quality new ideas and projects benefitting people where funding is otherwise hard to find. We are less likely to fund a well-established activity that is already significantly funded or has a long track record of major funding.
