BlueSpark Foundation

BlueSpark Foundation is a registered charity which supports the education and development of children and young people by providing grants for educational, cultural, sporting and other projects.

They are particularly keen to support projects which will help  the self-confidence, team working skills and future employability of children and young people. They will fund schools, voluntary groups, and individuals.

Many grants will be under £2,000, most will be under £5,000 and only in a few cases will grants exceed £10,000.

Applying for a Grant

All applications for a grant must be made online on our standard Application Form which should be completed by the person leading the project. Please read our Grant Policy before making your application and complete all sections of the form fully and clearly.

Grants will only be awarded for the amount requested in the application and will not be scaled back to a lesser amount. Please do not apply for more than the amount you require as this will reduce the chances of your application being successful.

Please bear in mind that BlueSpark provides funding for relatively small-scale projects which might not happen at all or would only happen on a lesser scale without the support of BlueSpark. Funding provided by BlueSpark must be crucial to your project rather than marginally incremental to its funding.

Please note: Basingstoke Voluntary Action work closely with the local community to raise awareness of grants and also assist with advice and guidance on applications etc. If you apply for this or any other grant, please let us know via email to enable us to understand what is being applied for. Also, if you are in fact successful in receipt of any grant please let us know to enable reporting of such funding locally.
