Fast Food chain offers grants to small charities supporting young people

The KFC Foundation, the charitable arm of the fast food giant, is offering charities and local community groups grants of between £200 and £2,000 to help people aged 11–25 years old.

The grants are aimed at charities supporting disadvantaged young people. This includes care leavers, those facing homelesseness, young carers, young parents and those at risk of crime.

Money will only be awarded to charities with an income of no more than £300,000.

Hospitals, uniformed groups and statutory bodies, such as councils, are not eligible.

The KFC Foundation Community Grants Programme aims to “empower young people to fulfil their potential and build a positive future by providing spaces that allow young people to feel safe and secure, helping them to unlock talent, build life skills, provide mentoring and improve their chances to gain meaningful employment”.

Those applying are asked to submit a two-minute video about their organisation.

Successful applicants are asked to prove the impact of their project within a year of the funding being handed out.

The deadline for applications is 25 September.
