Small Grants programme

About the Small Grants programme

The Society generates income through membership fees and the sale of publications. These funds are used to run the Society for the benefit of its members.

The Society has decided that a portion of its funds should be available to support projects of benefit to Herne Hill, and applications are sought from other organisations or individuals. This is provided for in Section 10 of the Society’s Constitution:

“After paying these expenses [all proper administrative and management expenses], the remaining funds of the Society shall be applied by the Executive Committee to the Society’s objectives.”

This document sets out how applications may be made.


You must demonstrate you will use the grant in line with the Herne Hill Society’s Objectives and Powers.

You will find it helpful to read the Society’s Constitution [PDF}

The maximum grant available is normally £500. You may not apply for more than one grant in a single calendar year.

We do not expect to make grants for projects which could be supported through local or national government funds.

How to apply

You can apply at any time by letter or email to the Chair of the Herne Hill Society.

Your application should:

* Clearly set out what you need the funding for and why;
* Show how the Society’s criteria will be met;
* Explain how the project will be managed and by whom;
* Set out a clear timetable for the project through to completion;
* Explain how success will be measured;
* State how much the project will cost and how much you are asking the Herne Hill Society for.
