Apply for funding Funding application process Funding application process Our funding policy sets out what projects we can support. Please have a read before you apply for funding as things may have changed since you last applied. Funding Policy If you have any questions at all, please contact the Funding Team at Leeds Cares on 0113 539 7091 or email [email protected] We work closely with Leeds Teaching Hospitals to consider applications and ensure funding is awarded to projects that will have the most impact on patient care and wellbeing, making best use of charitable donations. If you are successful in your application for funding, we will work with you to capture a case study about the impact of funding to share with our donors and supporters. This is an important part of the process and helps us attract future donations and support. For applications under £10,000 the Chief Executive has delegated authorities to approve these applications on behalf of the Board of Trustees. The process is outlined here: Under £10,000 application process For applications over £10,000 wider consultation takes place involving a Review Group, Funding Committee with the Board of Trustees making the final decision. The process is outlined here: Over £10,000 application process Due to the current pressures facing Leeds Teaching Hospitals during the second wave of the pandemic, we will be prioritising urgent coronavirus applications until the end of 2020. We will continue to receive other (non-coronavirus-based) applications for funding however these may not be processed as promptly due to the current situation. As previously announced, those applications where there is existing funding available – either through a designated fund or via a planned donation – will be prioritised in advance of those where unrestricted funding is being requested.
