The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust invites applications for several funding opportunites.
Note: The trust will not fund academic research, with the exception of research that forms an integral part of policy and campaigning work that is central to their areas of interest.
Sustainable future programme grants
These support projects on developing and promoting sustainable, low-carbon alternatives to the current consumerist and growth-based paradigm.
The deadline for applications is 30 Nov 2015.
Rights and justice programme grants
These aim to support projects on the rights of vulnerable racial and ethnic minorities, to hold governments to account and to strengthen the hand of those advocating with and for these communities.
Peace and security programme grants
These support charitable work on issues of peace and security.
Power and accountability programme grants
These support projects that aim to create a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are responsive and accountable to wider society and aligned with the long-term public interest.
The deadline for applications for the above three is 14 Dec 2015.
