The Rank Foundation remains operational during the COVID-19 pandemic and has made the following funds available to members of its existing network of current and past grant recipients:

  • An Emergency Fund for immediate grants of up to £750 to purchase equipment, technology or memberships; and
  • A Resilience Fund for grants to cover cashflow, fundraising and loss of income challenges relating to the current COVID-19 related climate, including those facing significant, unplanned demand on services.

Internal processes have been streamlined to ensure a swift and timely response to all requests. The charity is also reviewing its Pebble Grants programme to allow for wider public access. If you’re an existing member of The Rank Foundation’s network, you can apply for grants from the Emergency or Resilience Funds via the RankNet Community Platform.
