In evaluating a new charity, the UKFC reviews its mission, vision, and by-laws; current activities, financial statements, and personnel, to ensure your organisation is suitable to receive grants from a UK Registered Charity. In this process, the UK Fund For Charities makes no judgements as to the value of the work you do or the capacity of your organization to do it.

Only once all the necessary paperwork has been received and the evaluation fee processed will the Board of the UKFC then consider your application for evaluation. You will be notified of the outcome shortly after the board meeting has taken place.

Application Form

Required documents for evaluation:

  • A Charity Evaluation Application Form completed in full.
  • Documents that were prepared, signed, or agreed upon when your organization was set up. These typically include a statement of your organization’s mission, vision and by-laws. If these are not in English please, provide both an English translation and a copy of the original. Include name, address, email, website if any and relevant qualifications of translator. The translation should be legally endorsed. Note, the UKFC will also have the translation checked and may pass on any costs incurred.
