You need to make sure that you do your research and apply for something that really fits their criteria. It helps to have a personal relationship, or an email introduction from someone they already fund / support / admire. Be prepared for a very thorough application process, but that in itself is a rare treat to have your ideas tested with such rigour.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Gives more than money, Risk taker, Insightful, Friendly, Builds relationships

The foundation has a fantastic website and we would suggest they read information about PHF funds and programmes. If eligible to apply there are clear and comprehensive guidance notes about how to apply for funding, including frequently asked questions on the website. Reassuringly PHF are clear about the process and when applicants will receive feedback.
