Our Grants Programme

The Racing Foundation offers three funding rounds a year and accepts applications from registered charities whose projects directly benefit the horseracing and Thoroughbred breeding industry.

Three types of grants are offered:

Small Grants – of up to £10,000

Open Grants – from £10,000 upwards

Equine Science Research Grants

All applications are to be submitted via an online system and further information on what we do and don’t fund; what will be involved in the application process and what the deadline dates are, can be found below.

Application deadlines

For the Small Grants and Open Grants Programmes, the Racing Foundation accepts and considers applications for funding three times a year. Grant applications must be received before the stated deadlines, otherwise the application will be carried forward to the next funding round. For information on deadlines for the next funding rounds please see below.

Please note that the Foundation is unable to enter into any correspondence with charities seeking to appeal against a decision to reject a funding application.
