If we apply to one of your funds (such as Awards for All) can we apply to another (such as Investing in Communities)?

Yes, as long as they are for different projects and meet the relevant outcome/s.

Can organisations with larger incomes apply to Awards for All?

Yes, we can consider an organisation with any income level. We do though prioritise organisations with an annual income of £100,000 or less.
