Applications for 2018 grants now closed. 2019 Grant Applications open October 2018
It is acceptable to add an amount for the administration of the project, provided the amount is clearly shown.
Do not “pad out” the costs. Our partners did not become capable of giving generously by being stupid. If your project makes it through to the due diligence stage of the process and we discover that your costs have been grossly over–stated, your application will most likely end at that point.
No applications will go through to the final distribution process in May of each year from nations which are not up–to–date with their annual Ministry Report forms, and have them fully completed and submitted to the satisfaction of YFCI HQ in Denver.
No applications will be considered from nations who have without very compelling reason refused permission for the Foundation to fundraise in their nation.
Deadline for applications for funding in 2018 – 5.00pm UK time on Thursday 30th November 2017. These MUST be received by the deadline, together with the application fee, otherwise the application will not be considered.
