Funder of the Week
LUSH supports small, grassroots organisations around the world working in environment, animal protection and human rights. They look for organisations that take on issues that others don't, those that push the boundaries and challenge mainstream opinion.
They support non-violent direct action groups that play an important part in bringing about social change and prioritise projects that aim to create long-term change
'Charity Pot' is a Lush hand and body cream where 100% of all sales (minus local taxes) are distributed as grants, to groups working in the areas of:
- Animal Protection
- Human Rights (incl. social justice, peace & equality)
Charity Pot grants range from £100, up to a maximum of £10,000 per project/application. The average Charity Pot grant is between £2,000 - £4,000. It is unusual to award the maximum of £10,000, as this reduces the range of projects that can be supported.
Charity Pot grants do not fund individuals, only organisations and groups. Your group does not need to be a registered charity, Charity Pot grants support all kinds of groups, including new organisations and start-ups. However, your group should be not-for-profit. Applications from non-secular, religious or military organisations are not accepted.
