Grants to charities that support the serving Army

The closing date for the next round of applications for grants from The Army Central Fund is Friday 16 March 2018. Successful applicants will receive their grant in the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.

Each application is considered on its merits. It is a competitive process as the total applied for usually exceeds funds available. There is no guarantee that an application will be successful, particularly if your charity has been successful before.
