Focus of This Profile: Grants for projects in water and sanitation, marine conservation, and tropical forests.
Principal Office: Wales (UK)
The Waterloo Foundation (TWF) makes grants internationally and in Wales to address wealth disparity and climate-related issues.
The Foundation’s program areas are World Development; Environment; Child Development; and Wales. The first two programs (World Development; Environment) focus on issues in the developing countries.
Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources
1 -- World Development. This program area includes a theme on water, sanitation, and hygiene.
Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene -- TWF gives priority to addressing both sanitation and access to clean drinking water through an integrated approach. Grants are to organizations which demonstrate that they are able to successfully make this integration, and that the approach remains operational on a sustainable basis.
In exceptional circumstances, TWF provides support to develop technical capacity in the water and sanitation sector.
In addition to these main areas of funding, TWF occasionally funds projects to generate income from apiculture and sustainable aquaculture.
About World Development
2 -- Environment. Themes in this program area are marine issues and and tropical forests.
Marine Issues -- The Foundation supports initiatives to halt declining fish stocks of importance to local communities.
Tropical Forests -- the Foundation funds efforts to protect tropical forests in relation to their importance for climate, communities, and biodiversity.
In these environmental themes, TWF makes grants to fund practical local projects, as well as to support strategic initiatives at a larger scale (e.g., policy, campaigns, etc.).
The Foundation’s grants are for project start-up, initial stages, and ongoing funding. Grants are to registered nonprofit charitable organizations in the UK and other countries. Applicants from outside the UK need to provide references.
There is no minimum or maximum grant size, but TWF states that it is unlikely to offer a grant of more than £100 thousand per year.
APPLICATION (for 1-2 preceding): The Foundation posts application guidelines, eligibility criteria, and funding restrictions.
TWF invites short applications by email according to a prescribed format. There is no application form, and no application deadline.
The Foundation gives details on how organizations based outside the UK should obtain and submit references. References are preferably from an entity in the UK (details are provided).
