To apply you need to be registered as a Charity or a CIO and have income between £25,000 and £1 million in your previous accounts. You must have les the 12 months running costs in reserves.
The grants can support both core and project costs.

These new programmes demonstrate the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to support charities that have the greatest impact upon improving the lives of disadvantaged people and their communities.
Flexible and Responsive Grant Making:

- INVEST – A flexible, long term core funding programme for organisations delivering clear, targeted outcomes for disadvantaged people (Grants up to £25k per annum and up to six years); programme opens for applications 22nd May – 16th June
- ENHANCE–provides an option of tailored in-kind support to strengthen and develop charities. If you are successful in applying for an Invest or Enable grant, Lloyds Bank Foundation will work with you to identify whether support under the Enhance programme is right for you.
