The KINDNESS FUND
Bringing little ideas to life
Small Grants of up to £250
Open to children from Year 3 through to Sixth Form
The Kindness Fund provides funding for amazing ideas. Why? Because we want to live in a kind world – and that starts with every single one of us. At the School of Kindness, we work with thousands of children and teachers every year to help create kinder schools, and inspire people to be kind. But we think the best ideas for spreading kindness are probably still waiting to be discovered…
We want to encourage children to think about what they could do to create a kinder classroom, kinder school, kinder community and kinder world. So the The Kindness Fund can provide small grants of up to £250 to help bring amazing ideas to life.
Some previous grant recipients include a young girl who launched a ‘Strong Girls’ Club’ to support fellow students, twins who held a Christmas present collection for vulnerable people in their community, and a 10 year old girl who kickstarted a kindness movement in her school and produced a short film on kindness.
The Kindness Fund is open to children in the UK from Key Stage 2 through to Sixth Form. Funds will usually be granted via the child’s school / organisation, however, we understand that many children are currently being schooled at home so we are open to applications directly from parents.
Please read our Guidelines for The Kindness Fund before making an application. The guidelines also provide details of the application deadlines.
Some of our past grant recipients include Ava, who held a coffee morning at her local residential home, twin sisters who provided Christmas presents for people in need, and Belle, who started a strong girl’s club in her school.
