We do not as a rule support general running costs, including staff costs, preferring to fund, part fund or make a grant towards specific projects. We will not provide funds for commercial sponsorship, to individuals, for third party advertising or political campaigning.

Heathrow Community Fund Trustees meet up to four times a year to consider grant applications.
