The Coronavirus is having a devastating impact on our community, as well as the charities and causes who support some of the most vulnerable people in our community.

The Axis Foundation’s Trustees would like to reassure our charity partners and those seeking funding that we remain open for new applications and are committed to supporting our communities and the people worst effected by Covid-19.

To ensure this is possible and that the funds we have available are used effectively, to provide maximum long-lasting impact, we are making some temporary changes to our application, review and funding process:

Urgent Funding Applications – Coronavirus Relief

We would like to help the most vulnerable in our community through this time and as such will be prioritising funding applications that can make a long-lasting positive impact in relation to Coronavirus relief efforts.

You can continue to make any funding application, but we will only be dealing with those deemed immediately impactful in relation to Coronavirus relief efforts within our community.

Please note: We only support small, local charities and causes providing impactful front-line community services.

Applications Received (Prior to 31.03.20)

Our Trustees met on the 31.03.20 and reviewed the applications received prior to this date. The applications that met our criteria and that were selected for support will have the funding deferred until further notice – if they do not provide immediate and impactful benefit in relation to Coronavirus relief.

At a future date (to be agreed) these successful application will be re-reviewed to ensure that the charity or cause is still operating and the project or activity is still viable.

Non-Urgent Applications (Received Post March 2020)

All new non-urgent applications will be deferred until after the impacts of Coronavirus have been addressed. All applications received relating to non-urgent activity, will be kept and reviewed at a later date.

Funding Already Granted

Where the Axis Foundation has already provided funding: If you plan to adapt the original purpose or use of this funding due to the impact of Coronavirus or redirect it to relief efforts, please contact the Foundation prior to committing the money.

We hope you understand our response to the situation we are all facing and we look forward to being able to reinstate our usual application processes as soon as we can.
