About the Award
This award is for funders (trusts, foundations, companies, etc) that demonstrate a clear understanding of their beneficiaries and funding environment. The funder will be able to demonstrate that they apply and use that understanding to inform and improve grant making by giving clear guidance and support. The funder shows a willingness to work with applicants to address concerns and demonstrate a response to changing needs in the wider environment.
This is the only award where a nominee may be nominated by someone not representing the organisation. The person nominating the funding organisation should have direct experience with the organisation as they will need to complete the full application and provide as much detail as possible about their interaction with the organisation including examples.
