Grant Application Guidance

Thank you for choosing the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation grants programme for your group or charity.  

It can sometimes seem daunting to apply for a grant, however, don’t be put off, help is at hand! 

We have created a series of short videos to help you understand the information we would like to be included in an application. These videos cover the key parts of the application process, and we hope they will be helpful when applying for grants from any funder. 

What you need to know before you apply

It is crucial to think about the issue you wish to address and make sure it is easy to explain and understand. Once that is clear, you will need to think about the evidence needed to support your application.

Video applications

To make our grants programme accessible to all, we welcome proposals via video. This can be a basic recording taken on a phone, but we ask that you submit the video via a website such as Dropbox/We Transfer and that it is in mp4 format.

For further advice on applying via video, watch this short film.

We hope this guide will help you apply for a grant. For any queries and to submit your application, please email
