The Red Eagle Foundation is a registered charity (1179117) set up with the aim of EMPOWERING DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN with mobility, mental health and learning difficulties, and those from a disadvantaged financial background, in particular but not exclusively by the provision of funding for equipment not provided by the NHS.
In 2023 the Red Eagle Foundation merged with Kent Wish Foundation and now also grant wishes to children with life limiting illnesses in order to bring some joy into what is an incredibly sad and stressful period for both the child and their family.

The Foundation's annual giving budget depends on the amount of funds raised throughout the calendar year, however it is usually between £25,000 and £50,000.
The value of grants will usually range between £100 and £5,000.
Who is eligible?
The Red Eagle Foundation has a limited budget for grants and therefore is unfortunately unable to fund many other worthwhile causes.

For the avoidance of doubt, Red Eagle Foundation will not fund any of the following:
Higher education tuition fees
Organisations incorporated or based outside of the United Kingdom
Non-secular, political or otherwise discriminatory projects
How to Apply
To apply for your grant please tell us about your project and the background surrounding the reason for your grant in the application form below. Before you apply please make sure you meet the above criteria.
There is no deadline for applications and all will be acknowledged. The trustees and management generally meet on a monthly basis to review all pending grants. In deciding whether to fund a grant, the trustees will primarily consider the benefit(s) that will be provided to the individual or group.
We receive many more applications than we have funds to support. Prospective applicants should be aware that not all applications are successful, even if the request fully satisfies charitable objectives and application criteria. We will try to contact everyone that applies for a grant whether successful or not, however it may not be possible to do so.
Successful applicants will be notified by email and will be required to provide any additional information requested by the trustees. There may be specific dates that the wishes can be granted. If you are unable to meet these dates then it is possible that although the wish was granted it may need to be withdrawn. All carers of wish recipients will be required to provide further feedback and evidence to satisfy the foundation that the wish was used for the purpose for which it was awarded.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, applicants are required to consent to the use of the personal data that they supply in the processing and review of their application. This includes transfer to and use by such individuals and organisations as the trust deems appropriate. On submission of a wish request, the applicant must confirm that personal data relating to any other individuals is supplied with their consent.
