At Les Mills Fund for Children, we are committed to creating a healthier and fitter planet for our future generations. We want to do our bit to ensure as many children as we can get the opportunity to grow up healthy, fit and most importantly; happy. To fulfill our mission, we provide grants to charities and organisations who we believe will do their most to improve the education and physical and emotional wellbeing of children.
LMFC works with carefully selected organisations who share our values and have the resources available to help children. LMFC raises money to fund other charitable projects within the UK. In order to raise money our dedicated team carry out a wide range of charitable work.
What do we fund?
We award the funds we raise to registered charities and accountable non-profit organisations who we believe will do their most to improve the education and physical and emotional wellbeing of children. Your work may focus on one or more of these areas:
- Living in Poverty
- Physical & Mental Health Problems
- Health & Wellbeing
- Living With Disability
Quarterly deadlines 2017:
- 7 February
- 9 May
- 25 July
- 10 October
Our advisory committee (AC) meets every 3 months to invite grant proposals from charities and individual projects, working in the youth health and fitness field. The AC comprises of senior Les Mills executives and independent experts in the fields of education, health, and fitness. Its members meet to evaluate the proposals and advise the board on the most appropriate areas for support.
How much can you apply for?
We invite applications for up to £1,000. We want to support a wide range and number of youth causes that inspire children to get active. Please use the grant application form and submit it by 5pm on the day of the deadline to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you reapply?
If you are unsuccessful, we request that you allow 1 year before reapplying, allowing other causes to request support. If you have received a grant, you are requested to submit a grant report form to email address here when the project completes. You may then reapply for continuation funding, however, there is no guarantee of continued support so this should not be planned for.
