Standard Life Foundation

Deadline 5th February 2021

The Standard Life Foundation is an independent charitable foundation that aims to contribute towards strategic change which improves financial wellbeing in the UK.

The Foundation’s grants programme supports work that examines and promotes measures to:

  • Increase incomes for those on low-to-middle incomes.
  • Ensure people have an adequate safety net, building savings and assets.
  • Reduce the cost of living, making sure those on lower incomes are not paying more.
  • Address issues related to spending and borrowing, particularly where it becomes problematic.

There is no minimum or maximum size of grant, but typically grants range between £10,000 and £200,000, with most being between £30,000 and £120,000 in total.

The funding may be spread over one, two or three years, and sometimes shorter periods, for example six months.
