What We Fund

What We Fund

The PH Holt Foundation supports charities which aim to make Merseyside a better place to live, particularly smaller grass roots organisations that find it difficult to attract funds. We focus support on five priority themes.

To be considered for funding, your activity should meet at least one of our priority themes:

 Creating opportunities for people to contribute to their local community

Enabling people to overcome barriers and take control of their lives

Widening access to education for people of all ages

Increasing engagement in the arts for marginalised or excluded groups

Encouraging care of the natural and built environment

The majority of our grants are for specific purposes and diverse in nature. Additional qualities trustees look for in an application include:

Making Merseyside a better place to live

Encouraging self-help and resilience

Developing realistic and sustainable plans

Delivering strategic solutions

 Bringing positive change and measurable impact


Grants are usually in the range of £1000 to £20,000.  These are normally for a single year, but we can also consider a limited number of applications for grants to be spread over the life of multi-year projects.  In special cases, we can also consider larger grants to an appeal of major importance.
