Fund description:

The Blue Spark Foundation aims to help children and young people reach their full potential by supporting projects which:

  • encourage independence
  • develop team working skills
  • develop self confidence
  • promote creativity and individuality
  • encourage aspiration
  • enhance educational achievement
  • widen educational horizons

Projects can include a range of activities such as academic education, drama, sport, enterprise, debating, art and design, music, community activities and educational excursions.

The foundation provides funds for projects which might not happen at all or would only happen on a lesser scale without its support. Most projects which Blue Spark supports are likely to be initiated or undertaken by schools, colleges, clubs, community groups or other organisations, although individuals can also apply.

Most grants are under £5,000.
