Grants between £250 and £4,000 for UK registered charities and churches for capital projects, as well as short breaks and holidays for disadvantaged young people.


o Application deadline: none - applications may be made at any time.

o Who can apply: UK charities and churches for projects in the UK. Applicants must have an annual turnover of under £500,000.

The Rank Foundation’s Pebbles Grants programme, which has reopened again following a break during COVID, is directed at smaller UK charities and churches that may not be covered by the Rank Foundation’s larger programmes.

Grants of between £250 and £4,000 are available for either:

1. Capital costs - funding for fixed, one-time expenses incurred for building work, refurbishment and equipment, or
2. Short breaks – funding for respite breaks or holidays for disadvantaged young people.

The total cost of the project should not exceed £150,000 and applicants must have an annual turnover of under £500,000.


To apply, applicants should initially complete the online Eligibility Form. Eligible applicants can then complete the online application form.

Further information and guidance can be found on the Rank Foundation website.

Applications may be made at any time. Successful applicants may apply for a Pebble Grant once every 3 years (exactly three years after their original application date), while unsuccessful applicants may only apply 12 months after the original date of submission.
