Decision made and applicant informed in writing

The Grants Panel responsible for making funding decisions will be made up of both Freefill Trustees, with the input of our sponsor, The WCD Group. The panel will have complete freedom to decide how the funds are distributed. Their primary objective will be to verify that any receiving organization satisfies Freefill’s funding criteria and contributes to our charitable goals.

When will payment be made?

Payment typically takes around 4-6 weeks following the successful completion of the project. It is important to consider this timeline when determining the project start date.
