Persons responsible for preparing and submitting bids should be aware that the Foundation only meets every 8-10 weeks (but see the note* below). Using the list below, note should be taken of the date of the next meeting to avoid delays that may cause problems for your organisation. Ideally, applicants should aim to submit their form(s) so that they reach the Clerk at least 11 days before the meeting.

*In between meetings, the Chairman of the Foundation may agree to approve some lower value applications. Where this happens, the time-scales mentioned above do not apply.
