What they offer

Welcome to the Freshwater Foundation. We are a charity aiming to support small to medium-sized voluntary and community organisations in Ealing and Hounslow with grants for small-scale charitable projects, infrastructure spending and other charitable work.

Our new grant round is now open for applications, deadline 28th January, 2019. We would strongly recommend early submission of applications. Demand for funds is likely to greatly outstrip supply so only the strongest applications are likely to succeed. Even if a proposal is very worthy, it is likely to falter if not well argued and documented. Early application means that we will have time to help you with this and to present the strongest case possible for your proposal. If you are thinking of applying, then your best first step is to contact us at and we can arrange to discuss your application on the phone and give it the best start possible.

We are also looking at offering advice and tuition on various management, technical and legal topics of interest to voluntary and community groups and so would be glad to hear of your needs in these areas.


Are you a voluntary or community organisation engaging in charitable work?
Are you based within the London Borough of Ealing or the London Borough of Hounslow?
Is the spending reasonably small, up to £2000?
Will the project benefit the community or some group within it?
Is your project volunteer led or will it encourage voluntary charitable activity?
Although we will fund any work considered charitable in law, we cannot fund day-to-day running costs of the organisation.
We can also not fund larger bodies and all activities and organisations funded must adhere to our equal opportunities policy. See for more details about exclusions.

We are especially keen to hear from those starting new groups or breaking new ground and are happy to offer advice to any group in this position.
